Islamic Jihad Fired 780 Rockets From Gaza Since Beginning Of Israeli Operation (Videos)

The al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Jihad, and other factions in the Gaza Strip have launched more than 780 rockets at Israel since the beginning of Operation Breaking Dawn, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) announced on August 7.

According to the IDF, 270 rockets which were headed to populated areas were intercepted by the Iron Dome, with near 97% success rate for the system.

The IDF claimed that 180 rockets fell short in Gaza. A day earlier, Israel blamed a strike on the city of Jabalia that killed nine people, including four children, to a malfunctioning rocket that was allegedly launched by the al-Quds Brigades. These allegations were rejected by Palestinian sources.

The Magen David Adom, Israel’s main emergency service, said it has taken 28 people to hospital for injuries as a result of rocket fire from Gaza, so far. Two of the injured were lightly hurt by shrapnel and 19 were wounded as they ran for shelter. In addition, seven people were taken to hospital for treatment for anxiety.

Since launching Operation Breaking Dawn on August 5, the IDF have struck dozens of targets of the PIJ and managed to assassinate two senior commanders of the faction. Yet, it failed to stop rocket attacks from Gaza.

The IDF said it launched the operation in response to threats made by the PIJ, who have been very active in the West Bank.

Now, Israel is reportedly working to conclude its operation against the PIJ. Tel Aviv has already agreed to a ceasefire that was proposed by Egypt, according to recent reports. The ceasefire could be enter into effect as early as today’s night.

Israel had to call in extra iron dome units over 780 dumb rockets. The Palestinians haven’t unveiled their good rockets until Hezbollah go to war with them.

Good thing that US taxpayers are paying for it

Forget about hezbollah Why hasn’t hamas fired one rocket yet? I won’t be surprised if hamas are the ones who gave up the coordinates of ISLAMIC JIHAD commander. Hamas already betrayed the axis of resistance once in Syria where they fought along side isis trying to topple bashar al Assad who was the reason any charity and weapons ever reached those traitors.

Jnoub

Hezbollah and Hamas operate differently than PIJ. I do agree hamas does shady stuff and should send rockets, but keep in mind the way axis of resistance is smart, there must be a real reason why they haven’t told us

Simon Ndiritu

I have been thinking in the same lines.Hamas may have been promised something by sick old joe and were silly enough to sell PIJ

Ahson

No kidding. A lot of these Al-balastinian cunts have saddams pictures framed up in their homes and revere him. Nobody was surprised when they backed ISIS and tens of thousands even joined nusra and what not.

Many articles have HAMAS set up by Mossad or the other wing of Zionist “Intelligence !” – been known a long time.

There were reports I heard that Egyptian mediators had convinced clashing parties to a ceasefire which would take effect very soon.

Jnoub

Israel agreed, Palestinians didn’t. They said they’ll accept the ceasefire after certain people are released from Israeli prisons, and they get revenge on Israel for the assassinations

Bal- baleg

Well, let us be realistic here guys by honestly accepting the fact that Islamic Jihad operates with commendable bravery but in a dire position to launch a meaningful counter measure against the overwhelming power of IDF, and its action clearly benefits no one to say the least that’s actually detrimental to civilians of Gaza and the PIJ who’s members are getting eliminated further reducing the number of the small group. My point is for the various faction groups like Fatah, Hamas, PIJ and others to unite themselves first and establish a united force to create a better fighting chance to match the IDF firepower. Better yet to form a mutual defence treaty with Lebanon or any other countries willing to fight against IDF aggression. Like the saying goes “UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL”

Assad Defeated Zionists

Soon the war in Ukraine, the Palestinian territories, the Syria civil war, Taiwan blockade, other conflicts in the Middle East, all the military and financial aid that the USA pays to have fair weather friends are going to break the camel’s back and then there will be a new world order.

Jnoub

Exactly, and if Hezbollah does join, USA won’t be able to keep up with arming Israel, and Israel won’t be able to reload its iron dome every day

Powerful Gaza

This is just little Gaza strip, not Palestine vs Israel yet

The interception rate of 97% is false, that Amercan air defence systems are not nearly that good!!

not even against home made “rockets” Palestinians have

Yes the Iranian drones took out the US Patriot Missiles when the Saudis attacked the Hudis. The so called Iron Dome is the same as the Patriot Missles Fake, Fake, Fake.

US has been planning to destroys Russia Ukraine EU and China even EU because EU is competitor of US trade.

And only half of them reached Israel. The few rockets that reached Israel were either intercepted or landed in open fields. They did nothing. Even the Hamas lunatics know by now that the Islamic Yahoo freaks are a bunch of suicidal idiots.
