Some home made rockets?
The rocket attacks from Gaza continued overnight Saturday, giving local residents a restless night.These attacks did more than just instill terror in Israelis but has caused the death of Moshe Ami, 56 of Ashkelon.
Two rockets were fired towards Be’er Sheva just after 3:00 a.m. (Israel time). The rockets exploded in open areas and there were no reports of physical injuries or damage.
At about 5:00 a.m. Israel time, a Grad missile exploded north of the city of Ashkelon. There were no physical injuries or damage.
Meanwhile, IAF aircraft targeted six terror activity sites in Gaza overnight. Three rocket launching sites and one terror tunnel were targeted in northern Gaza, and two terror activity sites were targeted in southern Gaza.
According to the IDF Spokesperson, secondary explosions were observed in certain sites. Hits were confirmed.
The attacks came in response to the barrage of rockets that were fired at Israel throughout the day on Saturday.
Ten Grad missiles and over 20 Kassam rockets and mortars hit Israel over the course of the day, the IDF said.
In one of the attacks, 56-year-old Ami Moshe of Ashkelon was killed. Moshe was rushed to the Barzilai Hospital and was immediately taken to the operating room, where doctors discovered that a major artery in his stomach was hit by shrapnel. Moshe’s condition rapidly deteriorated and he died on the operating table.
A total of 16 people were moderately to lightly wounded by rockets throughout the day on Saturday, most of them being hit by shrapnel and suffering from smoke inhalation, according to Magen David Adom. 14 people were listed as suffering from anxiety.
Meanwhile, there were reports overnight of a ceasefire, brokered by Egypt, that had been agreed upon between Israel and the Gaza-based terror groups.
The Reuters news agency reported that the ceasefire will go into effect on Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m. (Israel time). Another report in the Ma’an news agency claimed the ceasefire had started at 3:00 a.m., a fact that seems to be disputed by the attacks that occurred after that time. In any case, the terror groups are notorious for announcing a ceasefire and then quickly breaking it.
16 other people were lightly wounded. And yet the MSM condemns Israel for retaliating and condemns Israel for attacking the "innocents" of Gaza.
Moshe Ami, 56, is the name of the Ashkelon man who died on Saturday night in a rocket attack on the city.
Moshe was rushed to the Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon and was immediately taken to the operating room, where doctors discovered that a major artery in his stomach was hit by shrapnel. Moshe’s condition rapidly deteriorated and he died on the operating table.
Magen David Adom reported on Saturday evening that a total of 16 people were moderately to lightly wounded by rockets throughout the day, most of them being hit by shrapnel and suffering from smoke inhalation. 14 people were listed as suffering from anxiety.
Meanwhile, Reuters reported that a ceasefire agreed upon between Israel and the Gaza-based terror groups will go into effect on Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m. (Israel time).
An Egyptian official told the news agency, "Egypt will pursue its contacts with all the sides until the agreement goes into effect." The report was unconfirmed by other sources.
Gaza sources said late Saturday evening that the IDF had attacked a terrorist gang in southern Gaza Saturday night, minutes after the attack on Ashkelon. Two terrorists affiliated with Islamic Jihad were reported killed in that raid.
Earlier, IDF forces attacked a terrorist gang in the southern Gaza Strip that was preparing to launch long-range rockets at Israeli targets. The gang was also responsible for the firing of a Grad rocket towards southern Israel this past Wednesday. Five terrorists were reported killed in the attack.
One Grad missile that was fired on Saturday afternoon hit the yard of a school in Ashdod. A second rocket fell in an open area in Ashdod, and the third fell near Gan Yavneh.
One person – a young girl – was injured trying to flee from the area of the attack in Ashdod, and a second person – a man in his 50s - was reported injured from shrapnel in the Gan Yavneh area attack. Both were hospitalized with light to moderate injuries.
The Israeli Cabinet has stated that the remaining 550 prisoners that are suppose to be released in the Shalit deal are not going to be released.
The idiots of Gaza should realize that there is no hostage any more in Gaza and nothing to stop Israel from wiping out every living thing in Gaza.
