Israel Under Fire (Again)

In a Twitter exchange with me this evening, Guardian columnist Deborah Orr had this to say about the rockets fired into Israel by Hamas and other terror organizations.

She should tell that to the victims of tonight’s barrage of rockets.

Some 20 rockets and mortar shells were fired from Gaza into southern Israel on Saturday, seriously wounding a man in Ashkelon who eventually died of his wounds, and lightly hurting two others in Ashdod and Gan Yavne rocket strikes.

Four rockets exploded in Ashdod, one directly hitting a residential building and lightly wounding a man. Another rocket hit a school, but caused no casualties.

An hour afterward a rocket hit an Ashkelon home, seriously wounding a man who was transferred to Barzilai hospital where he later died of his wounds.

One rocket exploded in Gan Yavne, lightly wounding a 40-year-old man who sustained shrapnel wounds to his legs. Several trauma victims were also reported.

A short time later, a Qassam rocket fell in Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, and three mortar shells landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council, causing no casualties or damage.

After several hours, two more rockets exploded in an open area west of Be’er Sheva, and no casualties were reported.

As a result of the escalation, school was canceled in Ashdod, Ashkelon and other towns in the 40-kilometer range from Gaza. Ben Gurion University in Be’er Sheva also called off classes, which were due to begin on Sunday.

Incidentally, the terrorists fired the rockets supposedly in retaliation for us killing five Islamic Jihad terrorists who had fired a Grad rocket at Be’er Tuvia on Wednesday night and were ready to mount another attack.

Here’s video of the terrorist squad preparing to fire rockets.

And here’s video Islamic Jihad released showing them firing rockets.

Israel needs to stop this once and for all.
