Rockets fired by Muslim terrorists from Gaza at civilians in southern Israel
BREAKING: Rockets were fired by Muslim terrorists in Gaza towards southern Israel for the first time during the current coronavirus crisis.
Code Red rocket alert sirens sounded in Sderot, Ibim and Or HaNer.
According to initial reports, at least one rocket exploded in an open area near Sderot.
“1 rocket was just fired from Gaza at Israeli civilians in southern Israel. Thousands of Israeli men, women and children are currently in bomb shelters,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
IDF international spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus wrote: “1 hour and a half ago, a rocket was fired from Gaza at Israeli civilians, during Shabbat Dinner. Not a single notice in international media yet. But I bet reports will be coming in soon”.
Hamas terror group armed wing Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, whose sole mission in ordinary times is to murder Jews, is now helping to build a 500-bed quarantine facility in Rafah. Al-Qassam terrorists were also seen sterilizing streets and buildings in Rafah.
Since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, the Palestinian Authority and Hamas have been particularly worried about the spread of the virus from Israel (despite the fact that the first cases of the coronavirus, and some later ones, came from people who arrived in the PA territories from abroad, not from Israel).
