The ceasefire that began last Thursday – the one that meant the two sides were not supposed to be firing at each other…was broken last night when Palestinians fired a mortar at Israel, and again today when four rockets were launched against Israel. And, since this blog is presenting Israel and how Israelis think, I have to be honest and tell you that the only thing that might surprise Israelis…is that it lasted this long. Sad, truly sad…but true.
As reported by Israel National News:
Four Kassam rockets were launched in an attack on Israel by Palestinian Authority terrorists in Gaza on Tuesday afternoon, wounding one Israeli civilian and sending several others, including children, into shock.
Three of the rockets slammed into the city of Sderot, one scoring a direct hit on an empty house. A fourth rocket exploded in a field in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council area.
The Islamic Jihad terrorist organization officially claimed responsibility for the barrage — the second such attack within the past 24 hours since the Egyptian-brokered temporary truce between Israel and Hamas terrorists in Gaza went into effect last Thursday.
