Israel airstrikes target Palestinian militants in northern and southern Gaza

Israeli airstrikes hit Palestinian targets in Gaza overnight, scoring direct hits on a "terror tunnel" and a weapons storage facility, the military says.

A military representative says militants have launched more than 110 rockets since Saturday.

"The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel," an Israel Defense Forces statement issued today says. "The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip."

    Why wait for over 100 rockets to fall? A counter attack of massive proportion should have been launched within minutes of a confirmed rocket firing. Israel is waaaaaaay too soft with these barbarians.

      Egypt is a headache for Israel after mubarak, they are so worried they sleep and wake up to find egyptian soldiers in their land as before (1973), but i think that Morssi is not that brave,, but the people or citizens are more brave and if open the boarders they will go to israel even they know they are dead

    The Word of God foretold of the latter days when the nations would surround Israel in order to defeat her. The God of Israel will Himself seek to destroy those nations. I believe that we are witnessing those days predicted thousands of years ago. What an exciting time to be alive.

    "right islam" lesson just for you muslim hi, liar, deceiver, terrorist criminal!
    Qur'an:9:5 "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."
    Qur'an:8:39 "So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world)."
    Ishaq:324 "He said, 'Fight them so that there is no more rebellion, and religion, all of it, is for Allah only. Allah must have no rivals.'"
    Qur'an:9:14 "Fight them and Allah will punish them by your hands, lay them low, and cover them with shame. He will help you over them."
    Qur'an:4:104 "And do not relent in pursuing the enemy."

    Hats off to Israel for defending themselves against the Muslim terrorists that Obama, the liberal media and all of his cult followers support.

    if you were my neighbor and I saw you setting up a rocket in your backyard to launch basically aimlessly into a populated area, I would call the authorities with coordinates..... Instead these people serve coffee and pastries to the perps because they PASSIVELY what the rockets to be fired..... The Jews should never give up any land! Fighting against "The Occupation" is nothing more than an excuse to try to annihilate a people.
