Skip to comments.Rocket fire reported north of Tel Aviv as Hamas dramatically ups range

No initial reports of injuries or damage after massive barrage across country; Netanyahu vows to widen Gaza operation, as cabinet okays call-up of 40,000 troops; rockets shot down over Tel Aviv; terrorists killed in firefight at Zikim army base; Gazan death toll in double digits.
Israel launched a major operation against Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza in the early hours of Tuesday morning, dubbed Operation Protective Edge, following heavy Hamas rocket fire over the preceding days.
The fast-escalating situation in the south comes in the shadow of spiking Jewish-Arab tensions in Israel over the brutal killings of four teenagers three Jews and one Arab by extremists. Stay with The Times of Israels liveblog for updates throughout the day.
Well that explains it. They aren’t shooting rockets into Israel, because it’s not on their map, they think it’s empty desert or something.... lol
And grania, what did the early American states do to so p!$$ off the murdering moslems of Tripoli (Barbary Pirates) that Thomas Jefferson had to go over there and help them “get their minds right”?
Not in vain has it been said, "There are none so blind as those who WILL NOT see." Nevertheless, my happenstance encounters with such persons have never failed to evoke a rather profound sense of dismay. The explanation given to you was simple, yet you claim that you do not understand, and that there is no possibility that you will ever understand. This indicates NOT inability, but UNWILLINGNESS; an unwillingness rooted in obstinate refusal to accept Reality as it truly is.
Since, you have chosen not to understand, you might forgive those who regard it as — shall we say — odd that you do not also choose NOT to comment.
great link JPG! thanks!
Did you hear BiBi’s speech just before they implemented this mission?
The question really needs to be addressed to Hamas....”was it really smart to anger Israel?”...who BTW has refrained time and time again from retaliating when Hamas rockets are shelled into Israel ‘all the time’.
Further...Palestinians and those in Gaza are angry at Israel all the time as well. Israel doesn't have to do anything at all.
Additionally...where is the outcry from all the shelling Israel has had to endure. No country would have stood still if they were shelled as Israel has been..not one.
Hearing the warning sirens is chilling enough! Sounds like kids videotaping....who should be in shelters you would think.
Of course they build...and the whole Palestinian population is consistently provoked anyway...they are wired for that. Besides are Arabs masquerading as Palestinians....there really has never been a Palestinian culture.
...”They dont want a state, anyway. They just want to crap in Israels sandbox”...
That’s so true...regardless of what they are offered they always decline because they’ll never be happy until Israel is gone altogether...then they’ll fight each other.
The only reason the Arabs and Muslims make issue of them is because nobody wants them in their country ....so they use them as cannon fodder. They keep them poor and wanting on purpose.
...”I just dont get it and never will. Its fuel to the fire. JMHO”...
Well ‘the fire’ is always kindled by the Palestinian brood....who have no intentions of Peace with Israel....Muslims only see Peace through conversion to Islam and that simply isn’t going to be anything Israel will ever consider...nor any Christian. So they fight, one way or another. Their Koran teaches it as well as their leadership. So there will never be Peace for long in the ME. It is an area of war...always will be...just look who is fighting who in Iraq. We moved out and now they’re going after each other.
That’s just a taste of what’s coming if this thing escalates as it appears it’s going to.
Watch Russia closely now.....I have reasons for saying this.
Great post. I wish more people would understand this.
They could have had a state any time they wanted, Israel even offered to support it but without Jerusalem of course.
But a state is not what they are really after....they want Jerusalem period....and even then they will never be happy until Israel is no more. These people will never be satisfied...they simply don’t have the mind or heart capable of being satisfied.
Barrage of Rockets fired towards Tel Aviv moments ago followed by sirens, multiple interceptions, no injuries
Sirens were just heard across Israel. Initial indication suggests two rockets were intercepted above Tel Aviv area.
I saw a comment by someone that they downloaded the Red Alert app, which warns of incoming rockets in Israel, says the darn thing won’t stop going off.
Half of Israel is sleeping in bunkers tonight. Meanwhile Obama is castigating Israel for being rude to the murderous barbarians.
I24 broadcasting live, says Iron Dome intercepted 5 Missiles incoming for Tel Aviv, also got others bound for other cities.
Is that the name of the app? They said something about “Red Alert” app
BREAKING UPDATE: 5 Rockets fired towards Tel Aviv, 4 intercepted successfully, 1 landed in the sea, no injuries
Israel had better protect itself. This country will not help them.
