Jews living along the southern border of Israel were attacked by Palestinian Authority terrorists in Gaza late Friday afternoon but the Code Red incoming alert siren did not activate.

The residents were caught unawares when the shelling started.


One of the mortar shells landed in the Eshkol Regional Council district north of Kissufim, just east of Gaza, in an open field less than a kilometer (about half a mile) from the security fence.

Local officials reported no damage to property and no physical injuries to residents in the area.

At least one more projectile – either a Qassam rocket or another mortar shell – landed within Gaza territory, officials said.

Three rockets were fired at southern Israel by Gaza terrorists on Thursday night. All of them landed within Gaza, close to the security fence along Israel’s southern border, near the northern and central areas of the enclave.

As happened several days earlier as well, Code Red incoming rocket alert sirens were also not triggered by Thursday night’s rocket launch.

IDF soldiers were deployed to the area to search for shrapnel that may have landed on the Israeli side of the border nevertheless.

  1. Why are sirens not being sounded? Does Ya'alon have a death wish for Sderot and the surrounding communities. He can't say they didn't come into Israel as one did. How many more incidents without Code Red before someone is killed?

  2. Andrew Weaver, you are an uneducated anti-semite! You have no clue as to the facts! Israel NEVER attacks, only responds in self defense or as a preventative measure, and NEVER wants to harm citizens, but the hateful "palestininans" make sure that this is what happens by using their children, women and men as HUMAN SHIELDS!!! Have you any ideam you blind anti-semite, have any idea what it is like to live with the constant threat of terror 24 hours a day, year after year after year???? And by people to whom Israel provides food, electricity, humanitarian aide and medical treatment??? Shut up, you stupid fool!!
