Must be Yasser Arafat's birthday or something. Otherwise, Palestinians just fired 40 rockets into Israeli towns and villages for no other reason except to kill Jews.
Over 40 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel's southern cities and towns on Friday. Eight people were injured and some damage was reported.
Rockets were fired at Be'er Sheva, Ashdod, Kiryat Malachi, Netivot, and Ashkelon, six of them were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, one caused damage to a fence in Be'er Sheva, the rest fell in open areas causing no damage, or casualties.
Earlier in the evening, a rocket that fell in a town in the Be'er Tuvia Regional Council caused damage to a house, but no casualties.
One person was seriously wounded by a mortar shell that exploded in the Eshkol Regional Council, and two more were moderately and lightly hurt. The three were evacuated to Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva.
Earlier Friday, two other persons were wounded in a car accident caused after a Grad rocket fell near the southern Israeli city of Ashdod. Three more Israelis were lightly wounded when they fell trying to reach bomb shelters when the alarm sounded.
Several Grad rockets were fired toward the southern Israeli city of Ashdod - two were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, and one exploded in an open area near the city. There were no casualties but slight damage was done to a house.
The IDF launched a couple of strikes into Gaza, killing three terrorists as they were in the process of setting off some rockets.
No doubt Obama will condemn both attacks, presenting them as morally equivalent. By delegitimizing Israel's right to defend itself, the president plays right into the hands of Israel's enemies.
