A child's nursery is hit in Gaza rocket fire.

Beersheba Mayor Rubik Danilovich said Sunday that southern Israel is in the midst of a war of attrition, this according to Ynet.

The comments came as the IDF reported 45 rockets hitting the region Sunday alone. In total the IDF reported 77 rockets being fired from Gaza into Israel since Saturday.

Danilovich is expected to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday.

Earlier the IDF released the below photo on their Twitter page of the Iron Dome defense system in action. One of the two rockets the IDF reported it as having intercepted Sunday was headed for Beersheba.

  • I was listening to Leonard Cohen’s Suzanne on the way to work this morning, but had my window lowered an inch to hear the sirens go off. For all the communities near the Gaza Strip had already been hit – Sderot, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Eshkol…. we could expect to be next. Another consequence of irresponsible 69 percent of American Jews voting for Obama whose administration donated $900m to Hamas … was I pissed !

    And we were hit, as expected. At 2 pm the sirens went off. The two safe rooms were packed with programmers, some talking, continuing to discuss work, some calling their families . How long is this bizarre show going to last? What country on the planet would tolerate that an encircled militarily inferior enemy lob dozens of rockets on its cities with impunity ? We in Be’er Sheva have 60 seconds to take cover or get killed, the people in Sderot have 15 seconds. The worst is to get caught at a red light in an intersection surrounded by other vehicles. Your only choice is to lie on the pavement and hope the Iron Done will be work. How would you in the US like to play this Palestinian roulette?
