Following an uptick in rocket attacks against Israel over the past 24 hours, the Israeli Air Force has targeted two terror sites in Gaza, an IDF spokesperson told The Algemeiner.

Israel said that the Gaza attacks endangered “13,500 residents of the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.”

The IDF confirmed direct hits on a “weapon manufacturing facility” in the Central Gaza Strip, and “a weapon storage facility” in the Northern Gaza Strip.

“Terrorists, under the Hamas rule, have turned Gaza, into a heinous sanctuary for rocket terrorism employed against innocent Israeli civilians,” Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman, said. “The manufacturing of rockets in Gaza has no other purpose except to target Israel and its sovereignty putting thousands of lives at risk.”

“We will not tolerate daily aggression from the Hamas ruled territory and are morally obligated to act against those threatening our communities, our towns and our cities,” he added.

On Tuesday the IAF struck multiple terror targets in Gaza after a sniper shot and killed a 22-year-old Israeli worker.

  • Amen Brother! Dr. Henry Kissinger said the only way to stop the terrorists is to make the price so high that they won’t be willing to pay it. I agree.

    The enemies of Israel MUST be pushed out of their nests; in the “Gaza Strip” PERIOD! They must be pushed out of the West Bank as well–period. Israel is for Israeli’s–period. Israel must retake the entire Sinai Pennisula and never ever give it back again–period! Damascus, Syria must be put on notice that it will become a “Ruinous heap” if i’slamic terrorists take up residence there–period! Israel’s people must have a strong buffer against i’slam, the pope (King of the North and king of the South)-period! Israel must prepare to destroy the Persian i’slamic 12ers–period. The “Dome of the Rock” must be bombed and utterly destroyed; and Jerusalem must become wholly Israeli–period!!!

  • You would think that with the BILLIONS of American dollars the USA gives. while our own veterans and elderly and poor people starve, live on the streets, in squalor. Too much money goes into the rich rulers pockets. I am pro-Israel, but it is so corrupt, I am tired of my tax dollars going there. Israel is a liability. It is so tiny, it will be destroyed by our enemies as a trap to get the USA into conflict. It’s time they stood on their own, and the USA step back.

    Send money to Israel to help them fight!! They need citizens of America because our government will not help them. Pray they succeed because we aren’t doing anything to help!!

    I am just wondering how fast will the world react whenever a civilian used as a sacrifice by the Gazans is killed by a rocket from the Israelis when no word at all condemning the Gazans firing rockets towards the Israeli civilian population. It seems that the leaders of Gaza are only using their people to fire rockets towards Israel inorder for the Israelis to fire back. In so doing, send civilians in the area knowing that Israel will hit the area with rockets, thus, civilians send by the authorities will die using them as a basis in trumpeting to the world that Israel is killing civilians. If the Gazans are having a hard time, it is all because of their own making. The best way to minimize the problem on the Israeli side is to demolish all buildings near the border up to an area where their rockets will just fall on the border without giving problem to the Israelis.

  • pray for the peace of Jerusalem, God will bless those who bless Israel.

  • Nuke Damascus and receive instant peace.

    From where are firing the rockets, declare it as no mans land. Anybody caught being in the area will be shot.
    If they do the attack on the outskirts of that area, push the no mans land a bit more.
    In effect you will be pushing the no mans land further and further away making Israel out of range of their rockets.

    Our prayer is that, while the unjust giving up of land to PLO is ever demanded by the international community, Israel be protected, be continued to be shown favor from ABOVE to shame those people around her who constantly seek her destruction and annihilation. With HaSHEM alone, long live eternal Israel !!! HE is for you.

  • James

    I think Israel should march in and kick all of them out and send them to Syria.

  • Andrew

    Hamas kills Israelis and we hit a couple of building, that does not work.

  • Lee Lanier

    Israel should take back this area of the Gaza Strip, Israel has made too many concessions, GOD BLESS !!!

    • Andray

      I have been thinking the same thing for years now. Since Israel returned the Gaza strip it has been used by Hamas for a staging ground for attacks. Palistinians are Arabic gypsies, no other Arab country will have them.
