Israeli security forces inspect the scene of a house in Moshav Mishmeret in central Israel that was hit by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, on March 25, 2019.

Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization claimed that its medium-range missile attack on a house in Moshav Mishmeret in the Sharon region earlier in the day had been a “mistake,” saying the missile that directly hit a house and wounded seven – including a baby and two children – was triggered by “bad weather.”

Another 30 homes in the moshav were hit by the blast as well, injuring and traumatizing numerous others.

The moshav is located about 120 kilometers – 75 miles – from the Rafah area in Gaza, where the missile was launched.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called on operatives throughout the Palestinian Authority, in Jerusalem and “the prisoners and in the prisons” to launch a comprehensive attack on all fronts. “We must fight this comprehensive attack in a unified national way and in coordination with the Arab brothers,” he said.

“The cost of any stupidity by the Israeli occupation against Gaza and the Resistance will be higher than its estimates,” a spokesperson for Hamas threatened. “We are strong and ready for this day, ready to fight, raise deterrence and defend our people.”
