Police: Rockets land in southern Israel

Two rockets landed in the southern Israeli city of Eilat on Wednesday, police said.

"We are telling residents to immediately take cover and make their way to safe zones and shelters if they hear the sirens," Micky Rosenfeld, a police spokesman, said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries after the rockets landed in a neighborhood and an open field.

    Weapons of mass destruction these rockets.
    With their 300 nuclear bombs, state of the art combat aircraft, attack chppers, tanks, missiles, nuclear subs, Iron dome missile Shield etc. etc Israel is defenseless against these WMDs.

      Would you prefer Israel to actually start using their 300 nuclear bombs, state of the art combat aircraft, attack chppers, tanks, missiles, nuclear subs, Iron dome missile Shield etc. It certainly would stop Palestinian rockets as there will be no one alive to launch them...

    About time the Powers get on to developing these Gazan rockets instead of wasting billions on high tech weaponry.

    And yet it's fine for them to rain rockets on them??? You all don't care about that at all. If Isreal wanted to, they could FLATTEN them in a second. Ask yourselves why they don't. Hamas apologists!!!

    @ ba, why? Because its all politics. Israel must always play the victim and when the rest of the world isnt watching they are like the bad boys on a gradeschool playground. Using every dirty trick they can think of. Then cry foul when palestine fights back. Spoiled freakin brats is what they are!

    @ Thinker23, what i would really want them to do is start behaving like adults instead of children. Stop taking things that dont belong to them, stop playing the victim while trying to manipulate us into starting another war. They really have no right pointing fingers at Iran for having nuclear capabilities when they, themselves have them. And they dont allow inspectors to come in there country to see what there up to why should other countries do so when Israel reguests it. AND last but in no way least, raise their own damn money! Quit expecting the US
    to constantly send them mega bucks that we dont have!!!

    So yea they should apologize to Hamas, give them back their land and then leave them alone! Thats what a supreme nation would do. The thing that would actually make them supreme since they feel they are is to be the better person! Instead they thrive on controversy and start chaos whenever they can. And its been going on far to long already.
