Israel: Hits back after Rocket fire from Gaza.

(Jerusalem)  As I have mentioned before, its friday, the do called Islamic holy day where trying to kill somebody guarantees you a spot in Heaven. Which kind of explains why the so called peaceful little state of Gaza decided to launch 3 missiles into Israel this afternoon.

2 of the Missiles were intercepted by the Israel Anti-Missile system 'Iron dome', with the third been allowed to impact due to the fact it was computed to land in a non populated area. Israel carried out a series of strikes against two Hamas sites in the northern Gaza Strip.

Usually missiles from Gaza are launched under the cover of darkness, however this time they were launched in broad daylight exactly at the same time as a ceremony marking what would have been the 24th birthday of Staff Sergeant Oron Shaul who was killed in the 2014 Gaza war and whose remains are held by Hamas. The time and location of the event were publicized ahead of time and it was in this area where the missiles were aimed.
