Last night, a house was destroyed in Netivot (a city of 26,500 residents) after a rocket hit its living room. The following pictures show the extent of damage to the house.
Since the beginning of 2012, more than 455 rockets have hit Israel. Over the past 9 days of September more than 10 rockets hit southern Israel, triggering alarms in the nearby communities.
Due to the heavy threat to the lives of Israeli civilians, school has been canceled for more than 40,000 children in Beer Sheva.
The IDF will not tolerate any attempt by terrorist groups to target Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers, and will continue to operate against those who use terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
