Twelve rockets hit Israel after truce: police
France 24 International News ^ | 11/21/12 | Unknown

AFP - Twelve rockets fired from the Gaza Strip hit Israel on Wednesday in the first hours that followed a ceasefire agreement ending hostilities in the week-long Gaza conflict, a police spokesman told AFP.

The Israeli spokesman added that the attacks caused no injuries or damage, with the rockets mostly landing in open fields in the south of the Jewish state.

A ceasefire agreement announced in Cairo on Wednesday went into effect at 1900 GMT, requiring both sides to halt fire immediately and for Israel to start opening Gaza's crossings if the truce holds for 24 hours.

The Israeli defence forces said a total of 915 rockets had hit Israel since the start of the conflict on November 14, most of the them landing in southern Israel.

Another 429 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defence system that Israel acquired from the United States.

The strikes killed five Israelis, including a soldier. At least 155 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli bombardment that came to a halt on Wednesday night.

Israel won’t do a damn thing because they are being held hostage financially by Obama.

Since the world wants to play games, Bibi should oblidge.

Draw up the plans to cede Jerusalem to the Muslims, inform the press that there will be a speech detailing the handover to the Saudis and set up a global presser.

As the conference begins, walk out and say “On this historic day, we wish to inform the world that we cannot give away what belongs to God. As such, you all should get your muslims under better control before you, like we, end up at the mercy of foreign powers telling YOU, with what, how and when you are allowed to defend yourselves.

As of now, the next attack on Israel gets the Mossad dumping ALL of their files on world leaders, the media and anyone employed by them onto the internet for the people of your respective countries to do with as they see fit.

Thank you and Good Night.

PS: You all better stop the the Muslims NOW unless you wish to explain a lot more to your citizens than you wish to.”

The Palis agree to a "truce" just about the time they realize the IDF is about to kick their butts.

It gives them time to re-group to plan to kill more Jews.

So many dreamers on FR. So much time wasted on thoughts that will never become actions.

Did I say he was ‘going’ to? Or that I expected him to?

So many people wasting time commenting on things that should be obvious...

Egypt’s president will be held accountable if Hamas or anyone else fires rockets from Gaza into Israel. On the line is $1.5 billion dollars in U.S. aid to Egypt

LOL

I don’t know how anyone could be surprised by this news. Israel gave the Palestinians the Gaza and recognized it as a legitimate state. The Palestinians immediately began launching rockets into Israel without the slightest concern about killing non-combatants in Israel.

They do surround themselves with Palestinian non-combatants. Israeli attacks against launching sites or terrorist leaders are routinely condemned by the U.N. and morons right here in America for killing innocents.

Israel does not have much time left. The specter of a nuclear Iran is close to becoming a reality. Israel will be nuked when that happens. There will be no Israel.

Under these conditions, if I was running the Israeli military, I would order troops to go into Gaza and kill every male old enough to handle an AK47. They would understand that. These idiots in America on the political left would not. I say so what?

IT is what the Palis do every time. Why Israel keeps falling for it is beyond me.
