If you follow our Twitter account, you may know we tweeted last night (Sunday) just before 9 o’clock Jerusalem time about inbound rocket warnings being heard in southern Israel again.
In the hours that followed, it emerged that three rockets were fired by terrorists in the rocket-rich Gaza Strip at anything Israeli (they don’t care). Two struck ground in the Hof Ashkelon region. A third failed to get across the border and as with so many, fell short on Hamas-controlled territory. Did it kill or maim any Palestinian Arabs living in the Gaza Strip? Did it destroy or damage a school, an ambulance, a hospital? It’s unlikely we will ever know unless Israeli intelligence picks up the details and reports it. The Hamas regime in Gaza will not. When it comes to their Fell Shorts , they don’t want anyone to know.
According to Times of Israel, quoting Israel Police, one of the rockets crash-landed and exploded in an un-named Israeli community (last night on Israel’s Channel 10 news, Moshav Netiv Ha’asara was suggested as the site). The other crashed into an open field nearby. Reports at this stage say there are no injuries to people and relatively small property damage to an Israeli residence.
The same report says
It was not immediately clear why the missiles were not intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system, an army spokesperson said.
The rocket men of Gaza certainly sought a larger return on their investment and fortunately were denied it this time. There is not the slightest doubt they will keep trying. They will invent justifications for public relations purposes but the reality is they will keep doing this until they are stopped. At this stage, the only way they will be stopped involves the IDF and selective, well-directed force.
