Israel Under Attack
Update (14.11.19) Ceasefire declared early morning, Thursday at 5:30 a.m. only to be breached with Jihad sending 5 rockets into Israel at noon time. Lone soldiers are being sent to Gaza to protect the country and fight terrorism.
Two days ago (12.11.19), dozens of rockets fired at Israel after IDF assassinates Gaza terror leader.
The Israel Defense Forces ordered schools closed in southern and central Israel, including the Tel Aviv metropolitan area, as terror groups in the Gaza Strip began firing dozens of rockets at cities and towns throughout the country in retaliation for the assassination of Palestinian Islamic Jihad senior commander Baha Abu al-Ata.
“We are prepared for several days of battle with an aerial defense shield, including in the center of the country,” IDF spokesperson Hidai Zilberman told reporters Tuesday morning.
As of now more than 70 rockets and mortar shells were fired from the Gaza Strip at central and southern Israel on Tuesday as of 9:10 a.m., according to the IDF. Soldiers operating the Iron Dome missile defense system shot down 20 of those incoming projectiles, the military said.
