Israel Under Attack: Hamas Rockets Continue to Rain on Israel, IDF Begins Strong Response


UPDATE: Ministers in the high-level security cabinet approved a massive aerial bombardment on Gaza following the rocket fire, but not a ground incursion, the Ynet news site reports.

“Hamas must be dealt a heavy blow, and yet, everyone understands our limitations,” an Israeli official tells the site. “We have no desire for large wars.”

The official expresses hope the escalation of hostilities will be over in two or three days.

UPDATE: Over 40 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel in the last hour. Sirens are still sounding in Southern Israel.

Please take the time to say some Tehillim for all those in Israel.

JUST IN: In response to the barrage of rockets fired into Israel, the IDF has begun attacking terror targets in Gaza now.

Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett and New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar back a strong military response to the Hamas rocket fire at Israel:

At least seven rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip at the Jerusalem area, Channel 12 reports. The army does not immediately confirm the information. There are no reports of injuries or damage.

The Hamas terror group threatened to attack Israel if Israeli security forces weren’t removed from parts of the capital.

An anti-tank missile was fired from Gaza toward Israel. As a result of the anti-tank missile fired from Gaza, an Israeli civilian in a nearby vehicle was lightly injured and evacuated to a hospital for further medical treatment.

As of right now, at least 70 mortars have been fired into Israel from Gaza in the last 24 hours and the situation continues to grow more serious. The current mortar attack is the largest assault on Israeli civilians since the 2014 Gaza war.

Early this morning, as Israelis were just waking up and taking their children to school, they found themselves under attack byan initial barrage of more than 30 mortars fired into southern Israel from Gaza. Families had 15-30 seconds to get under cover after hearing the piercing Red Alert sirens warn of an incoming projectile.
