21:14: The IAF is targeting terrorists in Gaza at this time. The aerial assaults are reported to be heavy. Sirens are sounding in Ashkelon and the Eshkol Regional Council.
20:33: At least 100 rockets fired in the last wave towards the W. Negev and many other areas including Beit Shemesh, Beer Tuvia, Gadera, Netivot, the Lachish district, and Ashkelon. A number of fires have broken out as a result of the rockets hitting open areas.

100 rockets into Israel? You’d never guess from MSNBC, CBS, and CNN. All I hear about there is that one Palestinian was allegedly murdered by Jews (the first in a very long time).
If you watch an unbiased news source, it’s clear that the vast majority of Israelis support the rule of law, including prosecution of killers even if they are Jewish. If you watch an unbiased news source, it’s clear that the vast majority of Palestinians support violence against Jews. I support the civilized side of this ongoing war, and that is not the Palestinians.
Obama urges Israel to show restraint.
The only restraint Israel should show is not nuking them.
It doesn’t change the fact it’s an act requiring response, but thank goodness the weapons are so inaccurate.
The Israelis arrested 6 men and the court remanded them into custody (like an arraignment I think). They are facing charges including murder of a juvenile, murder with hate crime penalties, terrorism, membership in a terrorist organization, torture, and kidnapping among others. Israel is proceeding as you would expect any country would to punish violent criminals.
Meanwhile, everyone is still waiting for the PA to find the killers of those 3 dead Jewish boys. Or release any evidence about the killers. Or ask the people for help finding the killers. Did they even post a reward to help find the killers?
Israel needs to pound them hard
Most of them are inaccurate but there are quite a number of sophisticated rockets, especially in the north in the hands of Hezbullah. Hamas probably has some in Gaza too, but to use them would be a tactical mistake, escalating the conflict when they may not be ready to, revealing their weapons caches and tipping their hand in other ways. Hamas will hold them back until they feel its necessary, such as in if the Israelis were to mount another “incursion” into Gaza.
I am still in awe about the Iron Dome. They can take out these short range rockets. They are even capable to detecting if a rocket will land in empty field, and if so to let it go. It not only saves ammo but allows the system to focus on other rockets that may hurt people. Its really a huge technological leap that may some day render short range missiles totally ineffective weapons.
With 10kt neutron bombs airburst over the Paly
refugee terrorist camps.
Imagine if Cuba shot 100 rockets into Florida...
Israel could build a tunnel from Gaza to Egypt with a sign on the Gaza side stating “Supplies and camel sex”. It would have a secret shunt, so the palis can exit to Egypt, but on the return path the shunt would direct them to a trap-door that would dump them into the ocean. If not that, they should bomb the crap out of Gaza.
So far, I’m amazed that so few of those poorly guided missles have hit the Dome of the Rock, thereby reducing that fragile old building to a pile of rubble.
I don’t know how long it will take, but, after Hamas finishes clearing the top of the Temple Mount, there will lots of room to build the Third Temple.
Answer: you already know
The MSM didn’t hardly mention the US citizen that was murdered (1 of the 3 kids)
Closer than that...more like:
Juarez into El Paso,
Matamoros into Brownsville,
Nogales into Sierra Vista and Tuscon,
Tiajuana into San Diego.
Unless they are down wind....
The Katyusha and Grad rockets don’t have the range to reach Jerusalem. They are rumored to have weapons that exceed that range. Anything striking TDOTR would be blamed on Israel, anyway.
Good. Now, Israel- finish the job.
Israel just needs to obliterate them. They have shown heroic restraint, IMHO!
They need to pound them hard enough to make it hurt
