Could you live this way? Should anyone be expected to? It must be stopped. Disproportionate force.
The very existence of Israel is an insult to devout Muslims. Is there no honest merchant who will speak to the root cause: Islamic Jew-hatred commanded by the quran?
From the IDF blog;
Over the past four days, life has become unbearable for the people of southern Israel. With over 200 rockets exploding in Israeli territory, their days were reduced to keeping within 15 seconds of a bomb shelter.
Used to frequent rocket attacks, the citizens of Ashdod (pop. 200,000), Beersheba (pop. 190,000), and Ashkelon (pop. 110,000), as well as smaller towns, were nevertheless taken aback by the intensity of the barrage.
Despite the security measures implemented by the Home Front Command and the IDF’s Aerial Defense Division, Israel’s civilians are still under threat. 13 civilians have been injured from rocket attacks, one in critical condition, and private property was harmed.
The rockets struck both inhabited and open areas, though most of the damage to residential zones was prevented by the Iron Dome system, which intercepted missiles headed for population centers. So far, Iron Dome has shot down 56 missiles out of 73 attempts.
