Raketter er skutt ned av Iron Dome over Tel Aviv og nord for byen.
Fire raketter traff Jerusalem og en stor mengde palestinere var samlet ved Al-Aqsa-moskeen for å feire og rope Allah er stor.
Palestinerne i Gaza viser for første gang at de kan nå omtrent hele Israel. Det samme demonstrerte Hizbollah i 2006. Israelerne kan ikke føle seg trygge noe sted.
he IDF now confirms that two rockets were intercepted this morning over Tel Aviv.
Hamas’s Al-Qassam Brigades takes responsibility, saying in a statement that they shot four M-75 rockets at the city.
Men det mest betydningsfulle som skjedde tirsdag var en M302-rakett som slo ned i Hadera ca 11 mil fra grensen.
Lt. Col. Peter Lerner tells the Times of Israel that the M-302, generally made in Syria, was one of the sorts of rockets found on the Iranian arms ship Clos-C, which was intercepted by Israeli forces in March. Israel said the ship was headed for Gaza from Iran, though the UN said it was headed for Sudan.
Although those rockets were seized at sea, it is now clear that others of its kind managed to cross into Gaza. “Our assessment is that there are [dozens] more of these rockets in Gaza,” he says.
Slike «oppdagelser» gjør at israelerne må slå til før rakettene rammer dem selv.
Det viser hvordan Iran forsøker å ramme Israel gjennom Hamas. Israel har formidable fiender.
Israel må forsøke å slå ut kommandosentrene og utskytningsrampene. Jo større rakettene er jo mer infrastruktur krever de.
Additionally the Israeli army on Tuesday targeted 120 concealed rocket launchers, 10 command and control structures – which also serve as the homes of regional Hamas commanders – and six government buildings, including a navy facility and Hamas’ national security ministry building, the army said.
Israel slår til mot lederne som beordrer rakettangrepene. Det koster liv. Også sivile liv.
Palestinian news outlet Ma’an reports that Islamic Jihad leader Hafiz Hamad and five members of his family were killed in an air raid just after midnight early Wednesday.
The strike targeted Hamad’s home in the northern Gaza Strip. Gazan health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra says six members of the same family were killed in the strike.
The raid brings the Gazan death toll to at least 24, including seven people killed in a strike on a house earlier Tuesday that a number of civilians attempted to protect with a human shield.
Israel startet operasjonen Protective Edge tirsdag morgen.
Status så langt:
Israeli forces carried out a total of 160 strikes on Gaza since midnight, the army reports, including raids from the air and from naval-based forces.
Since that start of Operation Protective Edge over 24 hours ago, Israel has hit 435 targets in Gaza, Ynet news reports.
During that same time, Gaza terror groups shot 225 rockets at Israel, reaching Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, points all around the Western and central Negev and southern Israel, and as far north as Hadera.
Forty of those rockets were shot down by the Iron Dome anti-missile system.
