Posted on 07/07/2014 12:50:31 PM PDT by Nachum
Hamas fired over 30 rockets in a ten-minute period into Israel on Monday, with hits reported in Sha'ar HaNegev, the Eshkol Region, Netivot, Sderot, and Be'er Sheva between 8:00 - 8:10 pm IST.
The rocket count has escalated to over 80 on Monday evening alone, Walla! News reports close to 10:30 pm Monday; the Iron Dome missile defense system has shot down 12-13 of them over Ashdod and Netivot.
No buildings were reportedly damaged. An Askelon woman and her child are being treated for shrapnel injuries; several Ashdod residents were treated for shock.
"Code red" sirens have reportedly been sounded as of 8:30 pm as far as Tel Aviv and in Gush Etzion; rockets could be seen from as far away as Beit Shemesh, just west of Jerusalem, eyewitnesses told Arutz Sheva.
Magen David Adom (MDA) has raised the alert level as of Monday night throughout central Israel.
In addition, preschools without bomb shelters in Ashkelon have been closed until the situation is quieted.
At least 2,400 people were also evacuated from a summer camp near Kiryat Gat, out of security concerns and due to the ongoing rocket fire.

Here is a dumb question. Why don’t the Israeli’s just cut off trade in food, electricity and fuel with Gaza? Also, end remittances. Could they not collapse Gaza in a few weeks?
Obama, “Probably all still part of the 4th of July celebration.”
Because turning off their cable TV would be considered a war crime
Didn’t Israel announce a few days ago that they would strike decisively if Hamas didn’t stop the rockets within a couple of days? Bibi needs to let them have it.
The Grand Imperial High Council of the Presbyterian Church USA cheered, got drunk and sacrificed a Boy Scout to Molech in celebration.
Nuke Gaza NOW!
By then the Arabs would just say, “eff it”, and start marching for the border and a million or so women and children later Israel would collapse.
Doesn’t Israel have a fence?
Shouldn’t Israel test one of their nukes? Gaza might be a good test site.
Our money goes to these bearded savages who use it to kill Jews.
Every time Hamas sends a deadly barrage of rockets into Israel and Israel’s Iron Dome fends them off, the resulting worldwide news reports serve as infomercials for Israel’s superior technology, not just its missile-defense products, which other countries become more aware of and want to buy.
Which increasingly means that Israel doesn’t have to worry if the Baptist Church, or Harvard, or any other anti-Semitic institution decides to boycott, disinvest, or sanction Israel’s products, since the Israeli economy can move ahead without them.
