100 messages of love sent from Hamas to Israel recently

None reached out and killed, a few did injure and some buildings damaged, along with numerous gophers and field voles but that's about it.  The terror created in the local population cannot be measured except to say once created, it lasts a lifetime.

No other country lives next to it's mortal enemy and allows it to take regular pot shots without wiping it off the map.  Nothing else shows as clearly the care Israel takes in responding to attacks than its patience and reserve in the almost daily barrage of  love and kisses from Iran-sponsored Hamas.  Hamas still exists today by the graces of Israel, I cannot understand why but that is a choice Israel makes in weighing all it's options.

Some 100 rockets hit Israel since Friday

Palestinians from northern Gaza fired rockets at Beersheba, Ashdod and Gan Yavne early Saturday morning as the Color Red alert was sounded across Israel's southern cities. 

The IDF estimates that some 100 rockets have been fired at Israel since Friday. Meanwhile, a new Israeli air strike in Gaza killed two Palestinians riding on a motorcyle, Hamas officials and medics said on Saturday.

The attack followed the firing of rockets at Israel at the weekend, raises the death toll in escalating violence since Friday to 15. 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke over the phone with Ashkelon Mayor Benny Vaknin following the escalation in the south. Netanyahu expressed support and interest in the well-being of Ashkelon residents suffering from the ongoing rocket attacks on the city.

IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz held a special situation assessment on Saturday given the recent rocket attacks in the south. Officials decided that the IDF will respond with determination to any attack on Israel. The officials also praised the Iron Dome system which successfully managed to intercept rockets fired at southern communities.

Deputy IDF chief, Southern Command head, an Air Force official, Home Front Command head, Operational Branch head, IDF spokesman all took part in the meeting. 

The Iron Dome has successfully intercepted 27 out of 30 rockets fired at Beersheba, Ashdod and Ashkelon. The other two rockets exploded in open fields.

These are the highest success rates for the defense system to date. Gantz praised the IDF officials in charge of operating the system during the situation assessment.

A Home Front Command official said: "The Command's instructions have proven to save lives and they should be followed. When an alarm is sounded or if there is an explosion – enter a safety area." Israelis are also instructed to avoid large gatherings of more than 500.

Beersheba Mayor Ruvik Danilovich addressed the ongoing rocket fire on Saturday, saying: "This escalation cannot be ignored." He added that he fully backs the government's decision to green light targeted killings against terror cell leaders planning a terror attack in Israel.

"These terrorists must understand they bear the responsibility," Danilovich emphasized. "Even if it causes tensions now, in the long run it will cause deterrence." 

Ashdod reported that the Iron Dome intercepted two rockets. The rocket fire continued throughout the night as two rockets fired atBeersheba from northern Gaza. One of the projectiles landed within city limits. No injuries or damage were reported.

In the early evening hours, the Iron Dome rocket defense system intercepted at least four Grad rockets fired at the southern communities of Ashdod, Gan Yavne and Kiryat Malachi.

The Color Red alert sounded in the Ashdod region immediately after the long-range rockets were fired, prompting residents to rush into bomb shelters and secured rooms...

And the mainstream media here in the U.S. reads,
"ISRAELI'S kill 2 Palestinians."

As is standard for the MSM, it twists, contorts, fabricates and paints the usual picture of
"Palestinians" (no such people)having had nothing to do with this "aggressive, unprovoked attack" by Israel.

Normal fair from anti-Semites now wearing the culturally acceptable disguises of "anti-Zionism" and pro-Palestinianism.

As Dr. Martin Luther King said,
"When people criticize Zionists they mean Jews, you are talking anti-Semitism."
