Israeli Artillery Targets Two Military Positions In Gaza Following New Rocket Attack

Unknown Palestinian gunmen launched in the noon of September 11 three rockets from the Gaza Strip at the nearby Israeli settlements.

Israeli sources said that the rockets landed in empty areas and farms. No one was reportedly injured or killed as result.

After the attack, the Israeli military wrote on Twitter: “3 rockets were just fired from Gaza to Israel … In response, we struck 2 Hamas posts in Gaza.”

The Shehab Agency confirmed that the Israeli artillery targeted two observation posts of the Hamas Movement north of the area of Beit Lahia.

A day earlier, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was evacuated from a campaign event he was holding in the southern Israeli city of Ashdod as a result of a similar attack. The Israeli Air Force responded with a series of airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

These repeated incidents show that the situation around Gaza is slowly worsening, despite the fact that both sides are not willing to engage in a large-scale military confrontation.

    when the squatters say that the artillery targets military positions in gaza, it means that they shell anything within concentration camp gaza’s barbed wire fence, be it women or children or animals or, in fact anything palestinian is fair to shoot at. and they do!

    israel needs to be shut down now. palestine needs to be liberated from all jews and returned to the people the land was stolen from, the indigenous palestinian people. nothing else will do. turkey, iran, syria, hezbollah/lebanon, iraq will do it as a joint venture and with Iranian missiles from the caspian sea, israe is toast, or toast toasted toten – that’s worth a larf!

    Why launch rockets at settlements and not military instillations? That doesn’t make sense.

    gaza terrorists will be dealt with after the elections. Massive ground operations planned for Gaza and Lebanon, possibly Syria. All of Israel’s enemies will be wiped out by the IDF!
