Terrorists Fire 8 Missiles Into Israel After Olmert Calls For Ceasefire
The terrorists in Gaza shot 8 missiles into southern Israel on Saturday.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
Palestinians in the Gaza Strip continue to fire rockets at the western Negev on Saturday evening, despite a cabinet decision that the IDF would halt their fire from 2 a.m. Sunday. At least seven rockets were fired after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced the unilateral cease-fire, with one Grad-type rocket causing power outages in Ashdod.
Rockets also hit Ashkelon and Beersheba. No casualties were reported in the attack, however many suffered shock.
On Saturday afternoon, Hamas exploited a humanitarian lull in IDF activity to fire two rockets at Beersheba. The projectiles hit in open areas, causing no injuries or damage.
Hamas declared Saturday it would continue to fight despite the ceasefire announcement.
UN Chief Ban Ki-moon was relieved over the news of the ceasefire and urged Israel to immediately withdraw from Gaza.
1,200 Hamas targets were bombed during the 3 weeks of fighting.
UPDATE: Iran gloats.
UPDATE 2: The Muqata reported: “Due to the success of Israel’s unilateral ceasefire, there will be no school in Be’er Sheva tomorrow. IDF intelligence reports to expect an increase in rocket attacks in the coming hours due to the ceasefire.”
