Update on rocket fire: Ashkelon targeted

The IDF is hitting back hard at Palestinian terrorist positions in Gaza after this morning’s bombardment.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad says Israeli airstrikes on terrorist positions in the Gaza Strip are continuing this afternoon in the western part of the Palestinian enclave, near Gaza City.

Other Gaza media reports also report that large explosions can be heard deep in the Strip.

Earlier, IDF strikes hit a Hamas training facility in eastern Gaza.

The terrorists don’t seem to have gotten the hint and have upped the ante with rockets at major towns:

This is a serious escalation:

Let’s hope and pray this doesn’t escalate any further. May Hashem protect our soldiers and the residents of the south.

    Please see my comment on the article below.

    It’s good to know that Iron Dome can handle mortars, which are in the for only about 15 seconds, as well as “conventional” missiles as well.

    This means that Hamas and Islamic Jihad now have even less chance of harming Israel and Israelis.

    Which can only be good news.

    And it’s only Wednesday, as I hit “send”.
