There goes the 'cease fire.'

'Several' people (the initial report said three but they removed the number) have been killed and several more injured in a mortar attack by 'Palestinians' on the Eshkol regional council in southern Israel.
Ten people in total suffered from the attack. Emergency teams evacuated at lease nine people to Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba. Four of those injured were airlifted to the hospital. 

The projectile fired from the Gaza Strip landed among a crowd of people.

None of those killed or hurt in the projectile attack were Eshkol residents, said a spokeswoman for the regional council.

Shortly after the mortar shell attack, the Code Red siren sounded in the area.

The head of the Eshkol Regional Council Haim Yellin urged civilians against visiting soldiers in the area.

This does not sound good.... Sounds like it was a bunch of people bringing packages to soldiers.... Time to start praying again.


I'm now hearing four dead and six wounded.

Of course the media won’t cover this, all they’ll talk about is the Palestinian “Hospital” that was hit.
