Israel Attacked. Again. Still.


IDF soldiers patrolling the Gaza border near the Kissufim crossing came under fire Sunday morning, shortly after four Kassams were fired at the South from the Strip. Troops returned fire into Gaza, and no casualties or damage were reported in the attack.

In the rocket attacks, one Kassam landed between two kindergartens in the Eshkol region.

Another two rockets hit open areas nearby and a fourth hit the Sdot Negev region. Four mortar shells also landed next to a western Negev neighborhood.

No one was wounded and no damage was reported in the barrage, and the warning siren was sounded before the rockets landed.

Shortly after the incidents, Fatah’s military wing, the Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, took responsibility for one of the rocket attacks.

Following the attack, Infrastructures Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer called for an immediate IDF response. “We need to respond severely and immediately… Hamas must pay for this,” he told Army Radio, adding that no one should give the excuse that a smaller faction was responsible for the attack.

MK Gideon Sa’ar (Likud) urged the government to immediately respond to the attack.

Eight rockets have been fired at southern Israel since both Israel and Hamas declared cease-fires some two weeks ago at the end of Operation Cast Lead.
