IAF Retaliates Against Gaza Rocket Fire, Targets Hamas Training Camp

Monday, January 25th, 2016

IAF aircraft bombed a Hamas military training facility in central Gaza early Monday. The attack came in retaliation to a rocket attack late Sunday night.

Red Alert air raid sirens woke sleeping children and families in communities in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, triggered by the rocket fire from Gaza.

In January alone, three rockets have been launched from Gaza and have hit Israeli territory. IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said, “Tonight, families in southern Israel were once again forced to find shelter, fleeing radical Islamic terrorism emanating from the Gaza Strip.

“Hamas is responsible and is accountable for all attacks from the Gaza Strip. The IDF will continue to operate and defend against those that undermine Israeli sovereignty while jeopardizing the safety and wellbeing of civilians.”

Three rockets landed in Israel in open areas near Nahariya, according to Channel 2. No injuries were reported.

Monday Morning Missile Explodes on Ashkelon Coast, No Alarm

Monday, September 21st, 2015

In the wee hours of Monday morning, at around 3 am, a Grad Katyusha missile was fired at southern Israel from Hamas-controlled Gaza, and landed in an open area in the Ashkelon coastal region.

No one was injured and no damage was reported — but no one was warned that the rocket was heading their way, either.

The Iron Dome anti-missile defense system did not fire, and there was no Color Red incoming rocket alert sounded, presumably because it was determined the rocket would land in an open area without people.

Security personnel who searched the area found missile had landed in an open area, near some greenhouses, in the Ashkelon coastal region.

Just three days ago, the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system was called into action to intercept a similar attack launched from Gaza by Palestinian Arab terrorists.

In that instance, the missile was heading straight for the city of Ashkelon, a heavily populated area. The Color Red incoming rocket alert siren wailed its warning from one end of the city to the other.

The missile was intercepted in mid-air and the threat was neutralized, while nearly 120,000 city residents waited safely in their bomb shelters.
