Gaza Missile Attacks On Israel Surge– Up 500%

Dr. Dore Gold, Israel’s ambassador to the UN in 1997-99, President of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and noted author sends this analysis on Israel’s War to Halt Palestinian Rocket Attacks.

The report discusses the history of the Gaza rocket fire into Israel that has been going on now since 2001. The terrorist rocket attacks increased substantially after Israel disengaged from Gaza in August, 2005. The terrorist rocket attacks have increased by more than 500% since that time.

Terrorists in Gaza have launched nearly 450 rocket attacks into Israel already this year. Last week the terrorists fired off a dozen powerful Grad missiles into the Israeli port of Ashkelon roughly five miles from Gaza’s northern frontier.
