Tragedy in Gaza: Pregnant woman and toddler killed in Jihadi accident
A pregnant mother and her 14-month-old baby were killed in Gaza due to a rocket fired from Gaza that fell short and missed its target of Israeli civilians.
As usual, anti-Israel propagandists and Israel-haters try to use this Jihad-induced tragedy to smear Israel.
A 58-year-old Israeli man was killed in the city of Ashkelon and dozens were wounded across southern Israel overnight, as a result of over 450 rockets that were fired into Israel by Muslim terrorists in Gaza.
Around 2:30 am on Sunday, a rocket hit a building in Ashkelon, critically wounding Moshe Agadi, a father of four.
Moshe died on his way to the hospital, marking the first death since the massive rocket attacks began on Saturday morning.
According to Arab reports, four Muslim terrorists and two human shields are said to have been eliminated and 47 wounded in Israeli retaliatory strikes.
Authorities identified seven locations where rockets exploded, including a school and a house in which Moshe Agadi was killed.
Since the escalation began, the IDF has identified 430 rocket launches from Gaza.
U.S. President Donald Trump’s Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt takes to Twitter, backing Israel and condemning Gaza terrorists.
“Hamas & PIJ have engaged in yet another deplorable act of terrorism, indiscriminately firing hundreds of rockets at Israeli civilian communities. The U.S. stands firmly in support of Israel’s right to self-defense and we call on the international community to do the same.”
Muslim terror fans of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups in Gaza celebrated the massive rocket barrages launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza at Israeli civilians.
The massive rocket attacks occurred in advance of Israel’s Independence Day and 10 days before the Eurovision Song Contest.
Israel has bombed over 200 terror targets in Gaza, including private homes of more than 30 Muslim terrorists mid-level commanders of the Islamic Jihad and Hamas terror groups.
Some of the buildings were housing weapons.
Among the targets: rockets launchers, terror tunnel shafts, Hamas and Islamic Jihad weapons manufacturing factories, Islamic Jihad compound and command center located inside a mosque, Hamas weapons depots.
The IDF is currently widening its air strikes and began moving tanks toward the Gaza border, preparing for an escalation that will last a number of days.
The IAF destroyed underground infrastructure for making rockets, leading to secondary explosions from the explosive materials.
