Overnight summary: Hamas Rockets Fired at Major Israeli Cities Published on: July 9, 2014 10 Yesterday evening, terrorist organizations operating in Gaza launched a salvo of 45 rockets at major Israeli cities, reaching as far as Hadera, located 100 km from Gaza.
The rocket that hit Hadera is an M-302 type rocket, similar to the ones found onboard the Klos-c, a vessel on which was an Iranian shipment of advanced weaponry intended for terrorist organizations operating in the Gaza Strip the IDF intercepted on March 5. Onboard the Klos-C were forty M-302 rockets reaching up-to the range of 160 kilometers.
Overnight, 4 more rockets were fired at Israel; all hit southern Israel.
Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman: Last night, the majority of Israels population was put under immediate danger as Gaza terrorists fired rockets at major Israeli cities. Despite the turmoil, we will not forget that residents of southern Israel have been suffering from unremitting fire for several years. Since 2014 began, about 500 rockets were fired at Israel. Operation Protective Edge will prolong until the fire at Israel ceases, and once we succeed in significantly depleting terrorist infrastructure in the Gaza Strip.
Overnight, as part of the ongoing operation Protective Edge, the IDF targeted approximately 160 terror sites throughout the Gaza Strip.
Among the terror targets the IDF struck are: 118 concealed rocket launching sites, consisting of long-range rockets launchers; weapon storage facilities; 10 tunnels, out of which 7 terror tunnels and 3 smuggling tunnels; 6 Hamas official facilities, and 10 terror command positions.
Since operation Protective Edge embarked on July 7, the IDF has targeted approximately 440 targets, with both Naval and Aerial capabilities.

Bull doze the place and push them into the sea. Then take back the West Bank.
Now watch the world press paint Israel as the aggressor.
Watch closely now...there is no longer a broker for middle east peace. The USA is out of the equation and Israel will no longer trust anyone-lastly us. The stage is set for the rise of the final anti-christ to waltz in “make peace”. It’s going to be a rough ride. It has been foretold and we know how it will end. The world is quickly spinning out of control!
