Many rockets have been launched from Gaza into Israel today, prompting the Israeli Air Force to strike the terrorist cells responsible. More rockets were launched, Yediot Achronot reports, as the tension and violence in the area increase:

The IAF responded quickly to seven mortars fired from Gaza Wednesday evening, striking rocket-launching terrorist cells in the southern Gaza Strip and continuing a general escalation in tensions since the bodies of three Israeli teenagers were discovered in the West Bank on Monday.

Two rockets were fired on Ashkelon after the IAF attack. One was shot down by the Iron Dome system and the other fell in an open area causing no damage. Another two rockets fell in open areas near Eshkol. Finally, a barrage of 8 rockets were fired at Ofakim and Sdot Negev. One was shot down, the rest fell in open territory and no injuries were reported.

    Just leave ISRAEL alone. Leave them be. Stop sending rockets their way. Let them live in peace. Do you not believe in peace? They are God’s chosen people. You haven’t a chance in destroying them!!

    We’re definitely living in the last days. The only peace for Israel will be the Messiah return. God will save Israel from annihilation.

Rabbi's Commentary
Together in Hope, Courage, and Faith

Recent terror attacks against nations founded on principles of peace, democracy, and the value of human life have been carried out by those who find these godly principles troubling and threatening. But despite the constant threat, these biblical ideals assure us Who will win this war.
