The statement noted that terrorists had fired 96 rockets and nine mortars at Israel during the recent wave of violence.

“Our confrontation with the enemy in this round was at the minimal level of fire and responses, this is a message that the (Israeli) leaders should understand very well,” said the statement quoted by AFP.

The statement comes after terrorists fired at least 41 rockets into Israel on Wednesday alone.

The Color Red rocket alert siren apparently failed to activate and warn residents of the incoming missiles. One of the rockets started a fire, but no one was injured in the attack.

An early-morning barrage fired at the Eshkol just minutes before Israel's final day of classes for some 640,000 public high school students had already sent youths racing for their shelters just before school was about to start.

They probably called a cease fire because they were out of rockets and to reassess their targeting.

Thanks Eleutheria5. It’s time that Israel bulldozed the Arab squatters out of Judea and Samaria, and Gaza.

I think it is only appropriate that Israel send those 96 rockets right back where they came from. Fair is fair. Although I would make sure they were returned with as much lethality as the Israelis can muster.

Relaod problems. No one will hear of the constant barrage until the islamic/ hamas ba-s-turds find a dead baby from a hospital, bolldy it up some more and blame Israel as an aparthied nation full of killers and worse...peegs and apes and all. Sadly it’ll happen.

More likely, out of people who know how to operate the durned things. Last few met with an unfortunate IAF accident. Need time to train replacements.
