In the past 24 hours, Hamas fired rockets at major Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Rishon LeZion, Herzliya, and Jerusalem, Israel’s capital. Their attacks reached as far as Hadera, which is 100 km (62 mi) away from Gaza.
How Hamas has attacked Israel during the past four weeks: Fired over 250 rockets at Israeli communities, struck civilian homes, exploded a factory, sent thousands running for bomb shelters, kidnapped and murdered three innocent boys, shot at soldiers near the border, and planned to attack Israelis through an underground tunnel.
The list of terror attacks goes on. We will continue to protect Israelis from this intolerable reality. REBLOG it.
Gaza terrorists have fired more than 100 rockets at Israel during the past three weeks. Israeli civilians living closest to Gaza have only 15 seconds to find shelter during an attack.

Yesterday, a long-range rocket fired from the Gaza Strip directly hit a residential building in Israel’s fourth-largest city, Rishon LeZion. After the air raid siren sounded, the residents of the apartment entered the reinforced security room - required in all new buildings by Israeli law - and thus were saved.
This video shows the severe damage caused to the building.
In response to incessant rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, the IDF has launched a widespread campaign against terror targets in Gaza. The operation, called Pillar of Defense, has two main goals: to protect Israeli civilians and to cripple the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza.
Here’s a recap of the seventh day of the operation.
