Israel National News:Gaza Terrorists Fire on Negev
Gaza terrorists fired a rocket at the western Negev on Wednesday night. The “Color Red” rocket alert was heard in towns throughout the Eshkol region, and a short time later a strike was reported in an open area. No injuries were reported in the attack.
The rocket firing followed on the heels of a Tuesday bombing that killed one IDF soldier and wounded three others before Israel responded by destroying three smuggling tunnels along the Gaza-Egypt border.
Eshkol regional council head Chaim Yalin called on the government to respond to Wednesday's attack as well. “We expect the government not to give in to the policy of restraint, and to respond harshly in order to protect residents,” he said.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak canceled a planned visit to Washington on Wednesday following Tuesday's attack., explaining he would remain in Israel to coordinate the IDF response to events in Gaza.
Olmert/Livni/Barak response (also known as official Israel's response):
IAF strikes in south Gaza following rocket fire
Report: IDF strikes Gaza vehicle, bystanders hurt
If you manage to figure out the timeline here - you must be a genius or have watched the news in Israel through out the day. One thing is for sure, Hamas bombed a border patrol, waited for Israel's mute retaliation then bombarded civilians again.
Bibi - come bulldozer the terrorist launching pad. Disengagement and Oslo are the cause, occupation is and always was the solution.
