The world’s favorite terrorists are giving them something to cheer about.
Iron Dome intercepts 25 rockets aimed city centers; 8 injured, including 1 critically from rocket shrapnel on Friday night in rural region; Safety instructions in place for residents living within 40 km of Gaza. The cities of Be’er Sheva, Ashdod and Ashkelon, are home to some 520,000 people.
(Watch the video of the IDF blowing up the terrorist scum as they prepare to launch before the hypocrites at YouTube takes it down. The understatement of the caption “Terror squad launch thrwarted” is priceless.)
Jerusalem Post – Cities, towns, and farming regions in southern Israel were targeted with waves of rockets fired from Gaza throughout Friday and Saturday, setting off air raid sirens and injuring eight people.
Palestinian terrorists fired 92 rockets – Qassams and the longer-range Grads – at civilian regions. Of those, the Iron Dome anti-rocket system intercepted 25 projectiles heading directly into city centers in Ashdod, Be’ersheba and Ashkelon. 67 rockets exploded in Israeli territory. The barrage came after the IAF foiled a major terror attack, killing the secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees, Zuhair Qaisi.
