Israel Strikes Back With Punishing Bomb Drop On Islamic Jihadi Targets In Gaza Strip

| March 12, 2014

Jerusalem, Israel: Israeli planes struck 29 targets in the Strip, the army said in a statement. Palestinians said at least five strategic points were hit in the coastal enclave, primarily in areas around the cities of Khan Younis and Rafah.


“If there is no quiet in our south, no quiet for the residents of Israel, there will be noise, lots of noise in Gaza,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a joint press conference with his British counterpart, David Cameron. “And that’s an understatement.”

Israel had warned that it would hit back hard at Gaza terror groups, after more than 50 rockets were fired at southern Israel. Among the IAF targets were bases of the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, which had claimed the rocket attacks, throughout the Gaza Strip, Palestinian witnesses said. No Palestinian casualties were initially reported. Earlier, IDF tanks fired shells at targets in the Strip.

“All of our planes safely returned to their bases,” the IDF said in a statement. “The attack was carried out in retaliation for the massive ballistic bombardment of Israeli territory this evening. The IDF will not abide any attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will continue to act decisively against anyone who employs terrorism against the State of Israel.”

Israeli military sources said after the late-night retaliatory strikes that Israel would now wait to see how Hamas and Islamic Jihad responded. If there were no further rocket attacks on Israel, the current flare-up would be over. But if there was more rocket fire, Israel would again respond.

As of late Wednesday night, the Israeli authorities had not canceled school for children in the south Thursday.

Although the rocket fire from Gaza subsided late in the evening, Israel raised its security alert in the south, and residents were told to stay within 15 seconds of rooms reinforced against rockets, amid indications that the dramatically escalated new round of confrontation was not over.

At least two rockets from Gaza fell in residential areas, one of them causing light damage in Sderot. There were no direct injuries, but a Sderot woman, aged 57, was lightly hurt as she ran for cover.

    The Jewish wedding ceremony is not a concern of mine. But what the Bible says is! From what I gather of from Genesis, is Jacob did not see his wife until the next morning after the wedding. It will be the same for the bride, New Jerusalem, when the supper comes. She will be unveiled at the end of the thousand year marriage supper of the Lamb.

    Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
    Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
    Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

    Funny thing, if all men are to be judged before she comes down, and I take it the judgment will be on earth, because nothing that defileth can enter the heavenly kingdom, and our reign is on earth to begin with, then it can not be the church that is the bride! Jesus said I go to prepare a place, that place is coming to earth, down from God, the new Jerusalem, prepared as a bride for her husband.

    Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
    Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
    We will be in her forever, we are her clothing.

    I’m thrilled that Israel struck back so quickly, and will do so again if they are attacked again! Our Lord protects Israel, and His People. The hate-filled Arab countries cannot win. “If God be for you, who can be against you?”

    God,bless Israel.

  4. Hezbollah is behind the push on Hamas to send rockets unto Israel, as Hezbollah wants Iran and Israel to go at it!

  5. Ross A Lloyd says:

    The only reason that there is ever peace over Israel is that Hamas and the Palestinians are out of rockets. As soon as they re-stock they fire again. There can be no peace with the evil Muslim mongrels that the Palestinians represent…

    As an Australian I support Israel 100%

    Very few people in the USA has ever read any of the Quran, Koran. They do not know how the children are programed from birth up. They are trained to hate Israel, Jews. They are taught to kill the Jews. It is in the Quran. They are trained that their God don’t needed a Son. In the USA now it is in so many Orgs. Called church you don’t have to believe Jesuit was born of a virgin girl as God had chosen. Rev. 3:14-22 Jesuit is at the back door asking for someone to come out and stand with h Jesuit
    don’t compromise with them. He was not judging
    them he was describing them when he said they were deaf dumb blirnd ignorant with their tracking. The
    Arab are blind in their way with the true word of God. The only USA is out of order now very bad. We had the right Book for over 400 years now. GOD trusted us with his Word. Obama is the last one to see to it that God and his Son Jesuit has been taken out of the minds of his government. People don’t know his flag has 3 golden fringes. The USA Flag is only Red white blue. His is Federal. Ours is state. He has the martial law set up over us. The PLO are playing their last tricks on the land of Israel now. The USA is in a free fall now. Roy CH USA

    IF YOU DONT HAVE JESUS YOU DONT HAVE SALVATION. If you don’t HAVE JESUS YOU ARE A LOST SOUL. The Quran KORAN DOES NOT HAVE JESUS. You do not have The live living God. The father of JESUS. ROY CH. Sorry!!! usa

    We as Christians rely on our God, for revenge. He does not relied on us to take revenge for Him. Muslims may take the lives of Christians, but they can’t pluck us out of Christ’s hands. Our God is a God of mercy and judgment not of hate and rage. But soon the tide will turn and vengeance will be manifest, in the fullness of time. Christians must be patient, for in your patience possess ye your souls, Luke 21:19.
