Israel’s Operation Protective Edge, Day 3: Hamas on Its Heels
The more terrorists Israel takes out now the better.
Check it out:
On Thursday, Hamas jihadis fired 192 rockets from Gaza into Israel, according to the Israel Defense Forces. 44 were successfully intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome short-range missile defense system, while 141 of the rockets struck Israeli territory.
According to Red Alert, a free app that documents every time a missile is fired into Israel from outside of its borders, an additional three rockets were fired towards the city of Ashkelon shortly after midnight, and one more at Haifa, located more than 75 miles from Gaza. Almost 400 rockets have been fired into Israel since Operation Protective Edge began Tuesday.
Hamas has ramped up attacks on major cities and infrastructure sites within Israel. Four rockets were fired at Israel’s capital, Jerusalem, and another six were fired at Tel Aviv. Hamas terrorists also targeted Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor. In doing so, as Breitbart’s Joel Pollak points out, Hamas committed nuclear terrorism in direct violation of international law.
However, the Hamas terrorists have largely failed thus far in achieving their goal of inflicting as much pain and emotional trauma upon Israeli society, especially in Tel Aviv.
