Terrorists from Hamas-controlled Gaza continued on Friday evening to
violate a ‘ceasefire’ that was declared on Wednesday and fired
rockets into southern Israel.
Three rockets were fired from Gaza shortly before 11:00 p.m. local
time. Two of them exploded in the Eshkol Regional Council and the
third exploded in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.
All three rockets exploded in open areas, causing no physical
injuries or property damage. Earlier on Friday evening, a Qassam
rocket exploded in an open area of the Sdot Negev Regional Council.
There were no physical injuries or damage.
The IAF responded to the latest attacks and struck the terrorist
squad immediately after it launched the rockets. The IDF
Spokesperson’s Unit said that a hit was identified.
It was the IAF’s second airstrike on Friday after IAF aircraft
targeted a terrorist squad that was preparing to fire a rocket at
Israel from central Gaza on Friday afternoon.
Medics in Gaza told AFP that the airstrike killed one person and
wounded two others. They named the dead man as Basel Ahmad, 29.
More than 130 rockets have hit Israel this past week. Gaza’s
terrorist rulers declared a “cease-fire” on Wednesday night, saying
they were committed to stop this round of confrontation “in response
to the Egyptian efforts to try and stop the aggression on our people.”
Hamas claimed that no rockets would be fired “as long as (Israel)
commits to stopping its crimes,” but that truce did not last long and
two Grad missiles were fired at Ashkelon in the wee hours of the
morning. Five short-range Qassam rockets were launched in an attack
on the Eshkol Regional Council district at about 7:30 a.m.
Terrorists launched another rocket attack on southern Israel Thursday
afternoon, aiming at the Sha´ar HaNegev district.
Ashkelon Councilor Shimon Cohen told Arutz Sheva on Friday that
things will not calm down unless the IDF bombs Gaza.
