Saturday Morning in Israel: Rockets Fired From Gaza in Major Attack
Overnight into Saturday, a massive amount of rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza. Civilians fled to bomb shelters as the deadly rain of rockets pummeled the country, damaging buildings, injuring people. The IDF responded to the barrage with airstrikes, as the Iron Dome system took out about 30 of the rockets. At last count, there were 174 rockets fired into Israel.
One rocket struck a children’s playground in Sderot. Homes were destroyed, fields were damaged, and Israelis were injured. But to hear the msm tell it, the only thing that happened was that Israel conducted airstrikes that killed a couple of Palestinian teens.
“It grieves us that tens of thousands of Israelis along the southern tier have spent all or much of the day in bomb shelters — many of them not air-conditioned — amidst temperatures hovering between 90 and 100 degrees.” Joel Rosenberg
Since Hamas and the other jihadists in charge of Gaza know exactly what the Israeli response to terror attacks will be, why don’t they warn their citizens? Why do they incite people to attempt to breach the border between Gaza and Israel? Because they can twist the narrative to make Israel look like the bad guy when they are just defending their people. And they could care less about their civilian population…or anyone else’s, for that matter.

New IDF stats:
In total, over 160 mortar shells and rockets have been fired at southern Israel by terrorist groups from Gaza throughout the day.
Of these, over 100 exploded in open fields, about 30 were intercepted by the Iron Dome, the rest landed inside Israeli communities.

This is a rocket hitting a playground in southern Israel. We’ve been hit by over 100 so far in the last 24 hrs. This is what hate looks like. https://t.co/gf6P4bkcNK

Of course, the mainstream media got it twisted and issued misleading headlines:
What the hell @reuters??? Again with the misleading headlines!!! And this one is unbelievably blatant!!! Hamas was firing dozens of rockets before Israel retaliated and your headline makes it look like Israel struck first!!! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! pic.twitter.com/4F2ubcYoYo

Yes I felt the same way. BBC radio said something like “Israel conduct air strikes on Palestinian areas. Believed to be in response to alleged rocket attacks “. Surely “Israel respond to Hamas rocket attacks with surgical air strikes” would be more accurate.

There you go again – putting the cart before the horse. Israel is retaliating against over 100 rockets having been fired on civilian targets in Israel as well as the fire kites which have destroyed thousands of dunams on farm land and nature reserves in Israel.

All day yesterday and all morning today I has getting missile alerts. This is not a way to live. Over 140 rockets launched onto family’s in southern Israel. So, the IDF retaliated by striking military targets in Gaza, But Israel striking Gaza is the only thing I see on the news.
