Over 100 rockets, mortar shells hit South in past 24 hours, Israeli officials weigh "dramatic response."
Israel will not hesitate to launch a major IDF operation against Gaza-based terrorist factions if necessary, Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned on Sunday – after some 100 rockets hit southern Israel in 24 hours.
Something from the heavens told me not to take my son with me to school today,” Moshik Levy, a physical education teacher, told Army Radio on Sunday after he was treated for his injuries.
“Shattered glass from my car windshield exploded into my face,” Levy said. “I started bleeding. I didn’t understand what was happening. Thankfully I was alone.”
A couple heading to work was lightly wounded by shrapnel. A fourth person sustained injuries while racing for cover at a bomb shelter as the rocket warning siren sounded.
Five people required treatment for shock, Magen David Adom paramedics said.
Later in the day, a Palestinian rocket scored a direct hit on a Sderot factory.
Sderot is too close to the Gaza Strip for the Iron Dome anti-rocket shield to work effectively over it.
And what does the Obama administration have to say about these attacks?
Cue the soundtrack of crickets chirping.
