Tel Aviv and Jerusalem Under Fire - Update Featured

Rocket sirens sounded in Tel Aviv for the first time since Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012.

Since the beginning of the year, Gaza terrorists have fired more than 450 rockets towards Israeli citizens. The attacks have sent thousands running into bomb shelters, threatening millions of Israeli lives. In order to restore quiet to the region and stop Hamas terrorism, the IDF has commenced Operation Protective Edge. The operation has one goal: to stop Hamas’ incessant rocket attacks against Israel’s civilians. Since the start of the operation, over 130 rockets hit Israel. Wednesday, July 9 00:00 AM: In the past 24 hours, 117 rockets struck Israel and an additional 29 were intercepted by the Iron Dome. Tuesday, July 8 11:51 PM: The IDF confirmed that a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit the city of Hadera, which is 100 km (62 miles) away from the Gaza Strip. 10:50 PM: A rocket from Gaza hit Israel’s capital city, Jerusalem. 10:05 PM: In the past 25 minutes, rocket sirens sounded across central Israel including the country’s biggest cities, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Within the last three hours, the sirens sounded multiple times in Tel Aviv. 9:50 PM: For the second time in less than 3 hours, rocket sirens sounded in Tel Aviv. 9:13 PM: Since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, about 160 rockets have been fired at Israel. 116 of them hit Israel and 23 were intercepted. One of the rockets was intercepted over Tel Aviv. In response, the IDF has targeted 150 terror sites across the Gaza Strip. 5 senior Hamas operatives, 10 terror tunnels, 98 concealed rocket launchers, and 18 weapon storage and manufacturing facilities have been targeted. Of the weapon storage facilities, 5 of them were located inside mosques. 8:35 PM: Terrorists attempted to infiltrate a military base in southern Israel. Several gunmen arrived from the coast and attacked with grenades. Infantry forces were immediately called to the scene and with the assistance of the IAF and Israeli Navy, four terrorists were killed. One soldier was lightly injured. The IDF is currently searching the area for other perpetrators. 8:00 PM: Terrorists are attempting to infiltrate Israel from the sea. The IDF is currently confronting the threat. 7:05 PM: Rocket sirens sounded in Tel Aviv for the first time since Operation Pillar of Defense in November 2012. 5:00 PM: Hamas fired a rocket at Ashkelon.

Since “Operation Pillar of Defense” in November 2012, Hamas has continued to arm itself with vast amounts of weaponry and is currently in possession of 10,000 rockets.
