Heavy machine gun fire hit four Jewish homes in the Gaza Belt city of Sderot on Wednesday. Miraculously no injuries were reported; the bullets were big enough, and deadly enough to penetrate the window frames of the homes and twist them like butter.


The bullets that struck the homes were fired by Gaza terrorists, according to the IDF, which issued a statement saying the military took a “grave view” of the incident.

“Hamas is responsible for all activities and events that take place within and emanating from the Gaza Strip,” the IDF Spokesperson said.

A separate source claimed the terrorists were aiming for an IDF drone flying over Gaza.
