JNS.orgPalestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired rockets into southern Israel in two separate incidents on Thursday, Israel Hayom reported.

A Qassam rocket exploded in an open area in the Eshkol region on Thursday night, causing no injuries or damage. Earlier on Thursday, two Grad rockets exploded in open areas in the Ashkelon region, also causing no injuries or damage.

Last week, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon warned Hamas, which rules Gaza, about continued rocket fire.

“We will not tolerate rocket fire toward Israel or any attempt to return to the situation to what it was before Operation Pillar of Defense [in November 2012], and we will respond decisively to any attempts to harm Israeli citizens or disrupt their lives,” Ya’alon said.

    What the IDF has to do now is go into gaza go house to house and get all the weapons. I know it’s a big job, but Israel has no choice. Lives are at stake. It doesn’t matter what the rest of the world thinks but it is Israel that is in danger. Lives could be lost. Israel has to teach them a lesson. No other country would accept rockets being fired at them everyday. Would Iran, Russia, of china accept this?
