Gaza Terrorists Pound Southern Israel With 45 Rocket Attacks – 1 Dead

Israeli soldiers carry the coffin of First Sgt. Moshe Naftali, 22, during his funeral at the Mt. Herzl cemetery in Jerusalem, Friday, Aug. 19, 2011. Gaza militants launched barrages of rockets deep into Israel early Friday and Israeli aircraft struck targets in the Palestinian territory in the aftermath of the deadliest attack against Israelis in three years. Gunmen who appear to have originated in Gaza and who crossed into southern Israel through the Egyptian desert ambushed civilian vehicles traveling on a remote road, killing eight people. Six were civilians, and two were members of Israeli security forces responding to the incursion. (AP/Bernat Armangue)

Terrorists in Gaza fired 45 rockets into Israel in the last two days. One person was killed when a grad rocket hit Be’er Sheva on Saturday.
Arutz Sheva reported:

Gaza terrorists bombarded cities in Israel’s southern region Saturday night. One person was killed when a Grad rocket hit Be’er Sheva, and another two were critically wounded. Four others were wounded as well, and are in serious-to-moderate condition.

Earlier in the day a 4-month-old baby, a 20-year-old man and 9-year-old boy were among those wounded when a Grad Katyusha missile fired by Gaza terrorists struck a home in Ofakim.

In total, terrorists have fired 45 rockets since Thursday night, wounding a total of 22 people. Four are in serious condition, suffering life-threatening wounds.

The Iron Dome system has shot down some rockets. On Saturday night it took out a rocket aimed at Be’er Sheva.

    Why do I suspect that Obama secretly enjoys these murders?

    This how smart diplomacy is measured, the body count. Hillary kissed arafats wife and obama faces mecca when he prays.

    Prophesy Watchers know that Psalms 83 is just around the corner. Gaza, Lebanon, Egypt and Syria will attack. Pray for Israel and the safety of the Jewish people.

    This is all to distract from the home countries problems:
    Gaza, tool of the Jihadest.
    Lebanon, Hariri indictment.
    Eygpt, MB takeover.
    Syria, protests.

    But Israel need to apologize, right?

    /In a PIG’S EYE!

    “The only good Jew is a dead Jew” Samantha Power and Susan Rice cheer. The presidunce is on the links but issued a statement through Jay Carney “My give-a-damn is broke when it comes to those troublesome Israelis.”

    Not to diminish this story but in other terrorist related news, the Verizon union thugs on the east coast are going back to work, without a contract.

    Worse is coming! Israel will and must defend themselves, and the best defense is a good offense. Go get them Bibi, hold nothing back, except an apology.

  • Christopher Taylor

    You know even cheap rockets aren’t cheap… where are they getting the money for all these attacks?

    I mean I have some pretty good ideas, but wouldn’t you think at least ONE legacy media outlet would wonder?

  • lol

    israel you are in our prayers. 2012 will be here before you know it, and once again you will have an administration supportive of you. one and done just like jimmy carter for this anti-semitic clown.

    Nuke Gaza

    btw that would help with the deficit, since we’re giving
    million$ to the terrorist scum they call Hamas regularly now

    45 rockets…

    …one dead.

    Incompetence, thy name is Islam. Praise God for making them almost dumber than monkeys.

    Were it not for the (near-complicit) incompetence of Reno, Clinton, and Gorelick, 9/11 would have ended with 12 terrorists either incarcerated or dead, before they ever boarded their flights.

    And “Fakestinians” better thank God (the God of Israel, that is, not their pathetic, imbecile-creating, demonic moon-god) that Israel is the most patient, longsuffering, forbearing nation which has ever existed. Because if Israel launched 45 missiles, there would be thousands of dead Muslims, and NONE would miss their target.

    “Death to the Juice!”

  • Taqiyyotomist

    I mean it, really and truly.

    You Muslims are almost dumber than monkeys. It’s as if all 3 billion of you (or is it 4 billion this week?) are sharing one brain cell.

    If there is such a thing as the opposite of a supercomputer, the total combined brain-power of the entire Muslim male population would have it beat in terms of stupidity and incompetence.

    There is no moral reason for Israel not to kill every terrorist…and every terrorist supporter.

  • Scott

    I seem to recall that Hussein wanted to send 900 Million dollars to Gaza to re-build after the war with Israel…I’m not sure how much actually got there but I think its safe to say the for the first time in history American dollars are funding terrorists to war with Israel…

    You are absolutely correct. Very soon.

    All you so-called conservatives who think, with your superior wisdom and brain-power, that the Bible is untrue…

    …pay attention. As Paul said to the Romans — your wisdom will be unmasked as foolishness.
