Jihad rocket fire resumes early Wednesday after 7-hour pause

Restrictions on schools and work in the Tel Aviv and central Israeli districts within an 80km radius were lifted overnight Tuesday, after a daylong barrage of 250 rockets kept millions of people safe in shelters. After a 7-hour pause during the night, those restrictions nevertheless stayed in place within a 40km radius in the south and areas abutting the Gaza Strip. Rocket fire resumed over these areas before 7 a.m. on Wednesday. They targeted Eshkol, Sedot Negev, Mate Yehuda and Mate Binyamin Councils, Hof Ashkelon and Netivot. Ashkelon center shut down after two rockets were intercepted.  Iron Dome which intercepted scores of incoming rockets from Gaza during Tuesday went into action again.

The IDF reported in its first briefing estimates that the Islamic Jihad has not done with reprisals for the killing of a senior leader Baha Abu Al-Atta by Israeli forces early Tuesday and will keep up its attacks in the coming days. Hamas has so far not joined the attacks; neither is it restraining its fellow Palestinian terrorist organization.

    Interesting to see if IDF will now attack to kill leaders for real and not empty buildings

    Jolly good news of rockets raining over Israel have reached us, but modesty obliges us to abstain from commenting with warm regards.

    After all, not all rockets come from deposits hidden in UNRWA schools.

    However, all Jihadi Islamic fighters have enjoyed the services of UNRWA and received formation with UNRWA textbooks from kindergarten and all along school years.

    We proudly take credit only for the formation of Jihadi fighters and monetary support of their extended families in the last 70 years.

    why complicate things with too much radius talk?
    push Gaza away 40 km and no need of radius.
    keep it simple, keep it straight!
