As Rockets Fired From Gaza Continue To Fall Over Israel For Second Day In A Row, Benjamin Netanyahu Says IDF Is ‘Prepared For Any Scenario’

Israeli fighter jets bombed a number of Hamas in Gaza, including rocket launchers and underground infrastructure, and an IDF tank also struck a Hamas observation post on the border. In light of the attacks, the military issued a number of safety instructions to residents of southern Israel, keeping people away from the border and limiting the sizes of crowds. Israeli officials warned that if the rocket attacks returned on Saturday night, this could lead to a wider conflict.  Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the military to “prepare for any scenario” with Gaza.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Palestinian terrorists launched at least two rockets toward southern Israel on Saturday night, one of which was shot down while the other struck an open field, as attacks from the enclave continued into a second day and threatened to intensify.

You can see this one coming from a mile away, rocket fire from Gaza intensifying as Biden administration announces full support for the Abraham Accords via something called the ‘Israel Relations Normalization Act of 2021’.

To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 13:16 (KJB) 

So even if every Muslim nation in the Middle East signs up to ‘normalize relations’ with the Jewish state, that really doesn’t solve the problem, does it? There won’t be any ‘peace’ in the Middle East until Israel and the Palestinians make it, and only the Two-State Solution will do that. Prepare for that, the rebuilding of the Temple, and the return of the Genesis 6 giants.

Two rockets fired from Gaza into Israel as fighting enters second day

FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: The first rocket attack came at 9 p.m., triggering sirens in the town of Sderot and nearby communities, sending residents into bomb shelters. Soldiers operating the Iron Dome shot down the incoming projectile, the Israel Defense Forces said.  An 18-year-old woman suffered an acute anxiety attack because of the alarms and was treated at the nearby Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon, the hospital said.

The second launch occurred an hour and a half later, causing alarms to sound in the community of Kibbutz Nirim, just east of southern Gaza. According to the IDF, the rocket landed in an open field near the security fence, without causing injury or damage. News outlets in the Strip reported that two additional rockets were launched at the same time, but failed to clear the border and landed within Gazan territory.

The attacks Saturday were the latest in a series of barrages from the Gaza Strip, beginning late Friday night. The launch of the rocket headed toward Sderot from the area of Jabaliya in northern Gaza was captured by an Israeli security camera. Palestinian terror groups have said that the rocket attacks were responses to ongoing unrest in Jerusalem, where far-right Israeli nationalists have held violent, racist demonstrations and where Arab residents of the capital have attacked a number of Jewish Israelis.

Israeli leaders have called for calm on all sides in Jerusalem, though police on Saturday night prepared for the violence to continue.

Over the course of Friday night and the predawn hours of Saturday morning, terrorists in the enclave launched at least 36 projectiles into southern Israel — toward the city of Ashkelon and the Eshkol, Sdot Negev, Sha’ar Hanegev and Hof Ashkelon regions — several of which landed inside Israeli communities, where they damaged a number of buildings and vehicles. Six of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome, according to the IDF.

In retaliation, Israeli fighter jets bombed a number of Hamas in Gaza, including rocket launchers and underground infrastructure, and an IDF tank also struck a Hamas observation post on the border. In light of the attacks, the military issued a number of safety instructions to residents of southern Israel, keeping people away from the border and limiting the sizes of crowds.

Israeli officials warned that if the rocket attacks returned on Saturday night, this could lead to a wider conflict.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the military to “prepare for any scenario” with Gaza. Defense Minister Benny Gantz similarly said that the Israel Defense Forces “will do what is necessary so the calm is preserved,” following security consultations at defense headquarters in Tel Aviv.

IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi also canceled his planned visit to Washington, DC, amid concerns that the fighting in Gaza would escalate, the military said.

Israel and Hamas have maintained an uneasy ceasefire over the past year, with Jerusalem allowing additional international investment and assistance to the beleaguered enclave in exchange for calm by terror groups in the Strip. READ MORE
