First rocket alert in Beersheba when Grad fired from Gaza

The Negev city of Beersheba was attacked with a Hamas Grad rocket from the Gaza Strip Thursday afternoon, after 180 rockets landed closer to the enclave including direct hits on Sderot.  The Grad landed on open ground. There are 26 victims in hospital with various injuries. The security cabinet is due to meet at 6 pm.  DEBKAfile’s military sources reports that Hamas deliberately intensified its rocket attacks against widening targets ahead of the meeting – as pressure on Israel to accept its terms for a truce.
This was the first Palestinian Grad attack on Beersheba since Operation Protective Edge for years ago. This rocket has a 45kg warhead and range of 48km.

    The more Isreal practices restraint to hamas` terror, the more emboldened hamas becomes.

    When will Israel realize that the Arabs look upon restraint as a sign of weakness? You can see the results of the Israeli inactions.

    I know if Germany decided to launch V-2 rockets on the English populations that the Englush people would not stand for it and that Brittish Parlement would make a violent responce that is much less tolerant of the perpitrating government than Israel is of this Gazan Hamas goverment. How do i know this? It has already happened.
