Overnight Overview: Gazan Rockets Pound Israeli Civilian Targets; IAF Retaliates

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Gazan terrorists fired five rockets during the early evening hours yesterday (Jun. 24) at southern Israel, sending tens of thousands of civilians running into bomb shelters in the highly populated Ashkelon area. Two of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-rocket system. No injuries or damage were reported.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) retaliated by attacking seven terror targets in the Gaza Strip, including five hidden launching pads. An IDF spokesman announced that the IDF holds Hamas responsible for all terror activity emanating from the Gaza Strip, and will continue to operate with decisiveness to protect the State of Israel.

A three-year-old girl from Gaza was killed after a rocket fired at Israel failed to hit its target and landed on her home in Gaza, this according to Palestinian medical sources. Four members of the girl’s family were injured after the rocket landed on their house in Beit Lahia, in northern Gaza. The four were evacuated to a hospital.

For more than a week, Gazan terrorists have continuously fired rockets at Israel. Over 20 rockets have been fired at Israel since the beginning of Operation ‘Brother’s Keeper’ to find the three abducted boys Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel. Over 200 have been fired since the beginning of the 2014. Since Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, terrorists have fired more than 8,000 rockets into Israel. Over 3.5 million Israelis are currently living under threat of rocket attacks.

“We have repeatedly addressed the consequences facing those who seek to endanger the lives of innocent civilians,” IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner recently said in response to the attacks. “Iron Dome’s success does not change the absurd fact that Israelis have been living under continuous rocket threat for multiple years. We shall persist with our determination to combat terror elements and eliminate the pending threat to Israeli lives.”

IAF Air Strikes Demolish Hamas Terror Bases in Gaza

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Israeli Air Force pilots carried out air strikes in Gaza Wednesday night in retaliation for rocket attacks launched by terrorists against southern Israel earlier in the evening.

Among the targets destroyed in the Israeli attack were two terrorist training bases in central Gaza and a concealed rocket launcher overnight.

One of the terrorist rockets hit a southern Israeli home (the occupants were not inside at the time), causing property damage. Another exploded in an open area.

Both landed in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council district.

“The IDF will not tolerate attempts to harm Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel,” the IDF Spokesperson said in a statement issued to media.

UN Chief Ban Ki-moon Equates Kidnapping to Israeli Defense

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

UN Chief Ban Ki-moon compared the Israeli air strike against an active Hamas/Salafi Jihad terrorist to the kidnapping of 3 Israeli children.

Following repeated missile launches from Gaza into Israel, as well as a plot to take down a helicopter, the IAF struck back, taking out Hamas policeman and rocket terrorist Mohammed Awar last Wednesday. Also injured in the strike was Awar’s human shield, his 7 year old nephew, who died on Saturday.

Unlike Ban Ki-moon’s unequivocal condemnation of the kidnapping of Turkish diplomats in Iraq last week where he said, “this is totally unacceptable” and he was “shocked” to learn of the kidnapping by “terrorists”, Ki-moon felt, in the case of Israel, the need to compare, in his boilerplate statement, the deliberate kidnapping of three Israeli children, to the strike against an active terrorist, which also killed a human shield the terrorist thought would protect him from an Israeli strike, as he continues his terror attacks.

Ban Ki-moon expressed, “deep concern on the trend toward violence on the ground and attendant loss of life, including today of a child in Gaza as a result of a recent Israeli airstrike.” Ban urged all parties to “exercise restraint and lend urgent support for the release and safe return of the three youths.”

Ban Hi-moon should have pulled an Obama, and just kept his mouth shut.
