Rockets fired by Islamic Jihad terrorists at civilians in southern Israel during alleged ceasefire
BREAKING: A barrage of rockets was fired by Islamic Jihad terrorists in Gaza towards southern Israel after an alleged Egypt-brokered ceasefire.
Code red alerts sounded in Yakhini, Meflasim, Be’eri, Shokeda, Beit HaGdi, Netivot, Zimrat and Shuva, Sharsheret, Havat Izra’am, Tkuma, Kfar Maimon and Tushia and Alumim.
This is what it looks like when terrorists fire rockets from densely populated neighborhoods in Gaza at Israeli civilians.
Earlier today, terrorists in Gaza continued to fire rockets into Israel after the ceasefire went into effect at 5:30 a.m.
A senior Islamic Jihad commander was eliminated in an overnight strike that targeted a house in Deir al-Balah, just a few hours before an Egypt-brokered ceasefire between Israel and the terror group went into effect.
“The IDF operated decisively and precisely against Islamic Jihad in Gaza until quiet returned to the skies above Israel. Quiet will be met with quiet. We will continue to protect the people of Israel and are prepared for any threat on all fronts”, the IDF tweeted Thursday morning.
Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza reported 34 terrorists eliminated and 111 wounded during two days of Israeli retaliatory strikes.
Israel’s Iron Dome defense system intercepted 90 percent of more than 400 rockets launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza.
The rocket barrages were triggered by the targeted elimination of Islamic Jihad commander Baha Abu al-Atta in a predawn Israeli airstrike in Gaza.
