It Looks Like War Has Officially Begun As Hamas Announces Start Of Hostilities With 100 Rockets Fired At Israel From Gaza Strip

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Fighting on the Gaza border erupted Monday afternoon, with dozens of projectiles fired by terrorists in the Strip striking southern Israel, including one that hit an Israeli bus near the border and seriously injured at least one person, officials said.

Now we know why Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu flew home from Paris in such a hurry, evidentially Israeli intelligence knew this was coming and needed their leader back before war broke out. This battle has been simmering for quite some time now, and it looks like it has finally reached a boil.

Upon his arrival, the prime minister received a security briefing from senior defense officials.

FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: According to the Israel Defense Forces, more than 100 projectiles were fired at Israel in less than 40 minutes, triggering sirens in Beersheba and even as far away as the Dead Sea and the West Bank’s Hebron Hills. If rockets were indeed aimed at the Dead Sea, it would represent the longest range attack by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza since the 2014 Gaza war.

A number of incoming rockets and mortar shells from Gaza were intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system, while several others struck homes and buildings in Israeli communities near the border, causing injuries and damage. In response to the heavy barrage from the Gaza Strip, Israeli fighter jets launched a series of air raids against targets in the coastal enclave, the military said. At least two Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire in the air raids in the northern Gaza Strip and three others were wounded, the Hamas-run health ministry in the Strip said.
