Israeli Air Force strikes Hamas in Gaza after Palestinian rocket attack on Beersheba

Israeli aircraft struck Hamas positions in Gaza before dawn Saturday, Nov. 16, after Beersheba came under rocket attack Friday night. It was the first time the IDF targeted Hamas for reprisals in the ongoing clash with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.  The two large Grad rockets that shook Beersheba’s population of quarter of a million were intercepted by Iron Dome. Nine people suffered minor injuries or shock as they ran for shelter in response to the rocket sirens.

    Maybe Ex General Fogel of Sourhern Command is correct, need to remove 50 terrorists per day, every day, until they dare not show their heads, because there can never be trust, ever.
    Thank you for your service,

      bombing empty fields is just to make the people believe they do the job for what they are paid for.

    I still like the idea of bulldozing Gaza into the sea, . . . turning Gaza into park of roses with a marble fountain in the middle.

    Treat Gaza like 1945 Berlin.

    it’s time for some “carpet” cleaning for those deep and grimy stain’s that won’t come out with just soap and water. deep cleaning is needed….it’s a shame the palestinian citizen’s can’t make their leader’s negotiate a peace treaty death to those who feel thataway so Israel has no option’s and if they retaliate the world jumps on them for defending their existance. as anyone else would and justify it and here we have eye witness TV internet and still they shame Israel? man alive the book of revalation’s predicted this would happen and in motion as i type…its coming. to reward us for our good work’s and scorn for the rest. you’ll see angels or you’ll see demon’s I seek the light that cast no shadow. hamas rev. guard what ever your days are numbered as Israel is still the chosen people of the one true God and soon he will defend them with his own hand

    It seems pretty linear to me. Hamas has vowed to destroy Israel. Hamas didn’t need to rig elections to win, they won on popular support, ergo the policy of Hamas is the will of the resident of Gaza. Solution? The only temporary solution is to make the cost of attacks on Israel so incredibly high that the common man is no longer willing to pay the price. Given the level of confidence that their plan is working and in the support of the west it appears that the price to make them rethink their strategy will be high for both sides. Peace, it is at all possible, will come when one side or the other has reached the level of hopelessness, when it is realized that so much has been lost and so much more threatened that continued resistance will bring utter devastation. After all, war is the art of depriving your enemy of hope.
