Only under Islam is targeting children considered “righteous.” But watch for the condemnations of Israel to come from the UN and elsewhere because of the IDF strikes against Hamas. What choice does Israel have? It would be immoral for Israel not to defend herself and destroy this genocidal enemy. It would be savage not to respond. The response, however, will be portrayed in the enemedia as if it were a gratuitous and unprovoked attack. It’s what they do.
“Dozens of rockets fired at south; IDF strikes 12 Hamas targets in Gaza,” by Judah Ari Gross, Times of Israel, August 8, 2018:
Dozens of rockets and mortar shells were fired at southern Israeli communities from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday night, including one barrage that slammed into the city of Sderot, injuring several Israelis, prompting the Israeli Air Force to bomb 12 Hamas positions across the Gaza Strip, the military said.
Wave after wave of rocket attacks set off sirens throughout the night in the Hof Ashkelon, Sha’ar Hanegev, Sdot Negev and Eshkol regions, outside Gaza, sending thousands of Israelis into bomb shelters, where many bedded down with their families.
One rocket or shrapnel from an Iron Dome interceptor damaged a home in Sderot late Wednesday. Two rockets slammed into the city earlier in the day, injuring at least two people.
According to reports, at least 50 projectiles were fired at southern Israel as of midnight Wednesday, including the eight that were launched at Sderot. An official count from the IDF put the tally at 36 missiles as of 10:15 p.m.
At least four rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, the army said.
“The majority of the rockets hit open areas,” the IDF said in a statement.
Spokespeople for the Eshkol and Sha’ar Hanegev regions said no rockets or mortar shells appeared to have struck inside any of their communities, though several were found in the fields outside their gates.
The Israel Defense Forces said its warplanes conducted airstrikes on 12 “terror targets” in the Gaza Strip in response to the rockets and an earlier shooting attack on a civilian construction vehicle near the border.
According to the military, among the Hamas positions bombed by the fighter jets was a factory where the terror groups constructs the concrete blocks it uses for attack tunnels and a fully operational tunnel opening near the Gaza coast belonging to Hamas’s naval commando unit.
In addition, a number of Hamas facilities used to manufacture and store rockets and other military equipment were hit in the strikes, the IDF said….
