Grantz: IDF will continue to retaliate to rocket fire ~ link ~ The Israeli's deliberately took out some Arab Gaza leader knowing good and well that there would be hell to pay. Are they making a new backdoor to a General Middle East War??? Stirling
Several people suffered anxiety attacks on Sunday after parts of a rocket intercepted by the Iron Dome system hit a car and a water pipe in Beersheba. More than 30 rockets were fired at Israel on Sunday.
At around 3 pm a rocket landed in one of Beersheba's residential neighborhoods, causing damage to 15 homes. A short while later another rocket hit near an empty school in the city. There were no reports of injury, but the structure was damaged.
Israel: Jihad Islami will pay dear if Fajr missiles fired ~ link ~ This could get out of hand. Stirling
Israel has passed a stern warning to the Palestinian Jihad Islami shooting missiles from Gaza for the third day to expect Israel punishment on a different scale from the current surgical air strikes if they dare fire the Fajr surface missiles supplied them by Iran, debkafile reports. The warning was relayed Sunday, March 11, through Egyptian Intelligence Chief Gen. Murad Muwafi who is working with Washington to halt the Gaza violence.
The Iran-backed Jihad has in its arsenal Fajr 5 missiles whose range is 110 kilometers and Fajr 3 which has a 60-kilometer reach. They bring into range Israel’s urban, commercial and population hub cities between Tel Aviv and Rehovoth, which are outside the range of the Grads and Qassams, more 110 of which were fired from Gaza since Friday.
The latest round of Israeli attacks has brought the Palestinian death toll to 18 since Friday.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday the Tel Aviv regime will continue airstrikes against Gaza “as long as necessary.”
More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed during the December 2008-January 2009 Israeli war against Gaza.
Gaza residents still live in what is known to be the “world's largest open-air prison” as Israel remains in full control of the airspace, territorial waters and border crossings of the Palestinian land.
