Gazas terrorist rulers marked the ceasefire that went into effect on Wednesday evening by continuing to fire rockets at southern Israel.
According to Kol Yisrael radios midnight newscast, 20 rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel since the ceasefire went into effect at 9:00 p.m. Wednesday evening. There were no reports of physical injuries or damages.
Before the ceasefire went into effect, terrorists fired a barrage of 40 rockets at the area, targeting Ashdod, Ashkelon, and Beer Sheva among other cities. In Beer Sheva, a rocket directly hit a home, causing no physical injuries.
Four rockets fired at Ashdod on Wednesday evening were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system.
Since Wednesday morning, Gaza-based terrorists fired more than 116 rockets into Israel. Iron Dome intercepted 20 rockets during the day.
Five people who were hurt in the terrorist attack on a Tel Aviv bus on Wednesday are still in the Ichilov Hospital. One is suffering from moderate injuries and the rest have light injuries.
Earlier on Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman held a joint news conference announcing the ceasefire.
Netanyahu said, "Eight days ago, Israel launched Operation Pillar of Defense, after attacks from Gaza that were carried out at a growing rate the last few months.
"The terror organizations assumed that we would abstain from an aggressive action, but they were wrong. We hit senior leaders, we destroyed thousands of rockets that were aimed at the South, and most of the rockets that were aimed at the center of Israel. We hit Hamas's control mechanisms. .....

These so-called cease-fire agreements are total rubbish. The U.S. has no business trying to keep Hamas going.
CBS evening news is currently reporting the cease fire agreement and not one word about Iran still firing off rockets.
Do it, Israel!
I have to say that I am also very upset about Netanyahu’s ceasefire agreement... what a letdown :-(
Maybe Hillary should get into the line of fire, raise her corpulent arms, and order God’s will for a cease fire!
Hillery just started her 2016 campaign. She did nothing but show up and will take the credit.
I was so hoping the IDF would go in and wipe that strip of evil off the face of the earth!
I am 45 years old and this same news story has been reported over and over again for my entire life. I think it is time for a new strategy. Give total destruction of the enemy a chance. The next ceasefire should come when the Arabs no longer can fire a rocket or, more importantly, wet themselves at the prospect of doing so. When they curl up into the fetal position upon seeing an Israeli soldier is when a ceasefire will have a chance of holding. The deaths of innocent Palestinians should not be their concern. Only victory and the end to the threat to their own citizens including their own Palestinian citizens who are willing to live in peace.
What a shocker! You can’t trust the word of a Muslim.
“I was so hoping the IDF would go in....”
I know - but Israeli soldiers will die in the process - like taking Fallujah - it’s a hornet’s nest.
If they can stop the terrorist attacks any other way - great. If not - then those young Hebrew men must go into the teeth of the Caannanite insanity.
Pray for our Israeli brothers and sisters.
C’mon Bibi, give war a chance!
He is the friend of the poor, so he makes more of them and keeps them that way. He is the friend of the dead (who all voted for him), so he makes more of them.
“She did nothing but show up and will take the credit”
Pssst—she built that ceasefire.
The Grim Reaper.
Maybe the word “ceasefire” in pali-terror-speak means “continue firing”? Who woulda thunk?????
He'll wait until a few more rockets hit then go ....
I have $20 that says none of the Alphabet media scum will ever report what is actually happening...
