Prime Minister Netanyahu has been to Sderot numerous times. Here he surveys Gaza from the city, 2010.

“At this moment, the IDF is responding to events in the north,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Israelis at a cornerstone-laying ceremony for new apartments in the southern city of Sderot.

“I suggest that all those who are challenging us on our northern border, look at what happened in Gaza, not far from the city of Sderot.

“Hamas suffered the most serious blow since it was founded this past summer, and the IDF is prepared to act on every front.”

Netanyahu’s response followed a multi-site attack by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror organization late Wednesday morning.

Two IDF vehicles were hit by rocket-propelled grenades and a home in the Druze village of Rajar caught fire after being struck by a rocket fired from Lebanon.

Hezbollah took responsibility for the attack, which military sources said may have been aimed at creating a distraction in order to attempt a cross-border abduction similar to that which launched the 2006 Second Lebanon War.

IDF troops are searching the area of Zarit for indications of a terrorist tunnel. There has been no information about an abduction thus far.

  1. Great- lets exacerbate both refugee crises- make them more desperate, homeless and unemployed with cold dead children, than they are now- then by action, support how Turkey deals with the Kurds- so we can alienate even more non-fossil fueled international support Very very smart General Custer-

  2. If Hezbollah tries anything at the Northern border wrap the whole area in flames (on their side). Don’t take the treacherous Europeans into consideration their influence are fading away any soon.

  3. Reading Margaret Kelos (below) made me sick. Can't Obama realize that these people that run Iran would have no problem Nuking Isarel NONE. All they had to say is that the Koran said so… but It's to late one to two million Israeli's dead one million burned. No more Israel. Opps — sorry.
