MC in Sderot has been sending us occasional updates on the renewed bombings in Sderot. Since these messages are coming in during what would normally be their hours of sleep, one can only presume there is no sleep in Sderot tonight.
His initial email says:
“The Hudna finally breaks, Sderot under bombardment once more.”
Next he sends the URL for the story [my emphases below — D]:
Gaza Terrorists Fire Two Rockets at Israel
Terrorists from Hamas-controlled Gaza “thanked” Israel for releasing 26 terrorist murderers by firing two rockets at the southern part of the country on Tuesday night.
One rocket exploded in an open area near the city of Sderot. There were no physical injuries or damages.
Kol Yisrael radio reported that a second rocket exploded within Gaza.
On Monday night, terrorists from the Sinai Peninsula fired a rocket towards the Israeli resort city of Eilat.
The Iron Dome anti-missile system, which was just recently deployed near Eilat, reportedly intercepted the rocket before it could explode in a populated area.
There were no reports of damages, but three people suffered shock.
Last Wednesday night, Gaza terrorists fired a Qassam rocket towards the Eshkol Regional Council.
The rocket exploded in an open region, causing no physical injuries or damages. Local residents said that the “Red Alert” warning siren had not gone off before the rocket exploded.
Oops — MC reports again:
“Another big explosion about 8 minutes ago; must be a mortar because there was no warning. Our cousins must be welcoming home their liberated brethren!”
Israel and Hamas agreed to an Egyptian-brokered “ceasefire” after Israel’s counter-terrorist Operation Pillar of Defense last November. Nevertheless, the terrorist groups operating in Gaza have violated the ceasefire countless times.
Tuesday evening’s attack took place as Israel released 26 terrorists as a “gesture” to the Palestinian Authority.
Some of the released terrorists are making their way to Gaza, but the Hamas government, which is against the talks in Gaza, has reportedly prohibited celebrations.
I guess blowing people up isn’t a “celebration” in Hamas’ eyes. It’s just standard operating procedure.
And once again, MC comments on the passing scene (actually I wish it would pass so the children could sleep):
“So the inevitable has finally happened and the Islamists are once more trying to kill Israel citizens; men, women, children, young and old — they don’t care; they are pigs and apes, just Untermenschen. So Mr President, so Mr Secretary of State, are you still going to force us to release murderers and make ‘peace’ with criminals, with Hitlerite scum?”
MC, sorry about your missed sleep and the crying children, but you see, the President is playing golf and the Honorable Mr. Kerry is wallowing in a trough somewhere on his yacht. Here, talk to the hand.
