Nine rockets fired from Gaza after Palestinian sniper injures an IDF officer

Wednesday night saw 9 rockets and mortars fired from the Gaza Strip against Israeli communities coupled with Israeli air strikes against 7 Hamas positions. Iron Dome intercepted one incoming rocket. The rest caused no casualties or damage.  Earlier, a Palestinian sniper injured an IDF officer, aged 21, from Dimona, during a firefight between the IDF and Palestinian gunmen. The Palestinians reported 3 dead. This incident occurred in the same Kissufim sector opposite southern Gaza where Sgt. Aviv Levy was shot dead by a Hamas sniper last Friday.

    This is once more clear sign that Palestinians from the occupied territory of Gaza do not like to live there, and they are doing all in their power and resources to start the moving out as soon is possible.

    The sniper is same person from the previous shooting and is most likely a marked target. He’ll be a down target soon enough.

    By waiting to launch a real attack against hamas and Iislamic jihad, Isreal is sustaining more and more provocation. hamas’ war of attrition is working.

    Hamas is calling the shots.

    It is ridiculous that Israel merely reacts, and limited reaction at best, as opposed to dealing with the problem once and for all.

    If they are concerned that iran and/or hizbollah joining the war with gaza, they are only putting off the inevitable, while hamas hezbollah and iran continue to prepare for this war.

    Better to strike early, in order to minimize Much larger potential damages later on.
