Attack On Israel

On a tense Saturday morning, terrorists from the Gaza Strip fired a salvo of rockets toward Israel, setting off air raid sirens around the country. There are worries that the rocket launch may make the already fragile region even more unstable.

Shouting sirens could be heard as far north as Tel Aviv, around 70 kilometers (40 miles) from Gaza, during the early-morning bombardment. Gaza was able to hear the sounds of rockets being shot.

Israel didn’t respond straight after, but history demonstrates that it regularly launches airstrikes in response to missile fire, which might exacerbate the situation.

These rocket assaults come after weeks of escalating hostilities between Israel and Gaza, which were preceded by bloody rioting in Israel’s occupied West Bank.

 

Widespread Impact And Casualties

The official X handle of Israel shared a video and wrote,

Israel is at war.

Earlier this morning armed Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israeli communities and started going house to house and murdering innocent Israelis.

Some of the images are so disturbing we cannot even share them.

We will take every measure to protect our citizens and target those who harm them.

The rocket attacks caused Red Alert warning sirens to sound in several towns and cities. These include Tel Aviv, Sde Boker, Arad, and Dimona, all of which are more than 70 kilometers from the Gaza Strip. The seriousness of the situation was highlighted by the sounds of explosions heard by locals in several locations.

The medical agency, Magen David Adom, responded immediately when reports of rocket attacks were received in several locations, including Yavne, Ashkelon, and Kfar Aviv.

According to a tragic MDA report, a 20-year-old man was slightly hurt by missile shrapnel near Yavne. This further highlights the real hazards these strikes pose.
