The Israeli Air Force struck a Gaza rocket launching crew moments after they launched an attack earlier today.

“This afternoon a terrorist squad fired a rocket from the central Gaza Strip at Israel and was targeted, moments following, by IAF aircraft. A hit was confirmed,” said the IDF in a release to reporters.

The IAF initiative is the 4th strike on Gaza terror infrastructure in the last 24 hour period, and comes as Israel moves to stem a recent uptick in rocket attacks. “Over 500 rockets have hit Israel since the beginning of 2012, over 40 in October alone,” said the IDF statement. Two rockets fired this morning from the Strip exploded in areas in the Eshkol Regional Council.

According to Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot citing “Palestinian sources”, one terror operative was killed instantly, and another terrorist died of his wounds in hospital. Two other were injured according to the report.

    Sadly this is the only way to send the jihadists a message that they will understand. For they don’t understand what reason is and will hear not of it . For they will not respond to reason. They have proven time and time again that the only language that they understand and respect is the language of violence. Therefore that is the way they need to be spoken to in order to get the message through. Themessage is “Stop doing heinous acts of evil and nothing you don’t like will happen to you.”
    All this may be put in another way, by the words of the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. For he stated “With every barbarous people…force is law.”

  • GO GET ‘EM!!! They can’t live with us? Too bad. We Jews will not be pushed around any longer. Hitler didn’t mean to, but he taught us Jews a good lesson and we will not forget it. The days when the Jews were discirminated against are over. We will not be messed with, by anyone.

    Ya got a problem with that?
