Palestinian terrorists in Gaza fired a rocket into Israel on election day, just as Prime Minister Netanyahu was in the area.
Thankfully there were no reports of casualties.
According to JNS, the rocket was launched just as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was hitting the campaign trail in the city of Beersheva in an apparent attempt to disrupt Israel’s general election.
The army added that it holds Hamas responsible for what happens in Gaza and that the terror group would “bear the consequences of terrorist acts against Israeli citizens.”
In response the IDF struck several Hamas military installations in the Gaza Strip.
“Fighter jets and attack helicopters targeted a rocket manufacturing facility and a military outpost belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization in the Gaza Strip. The attack was carried out in response to the rocket fire from Gaza into Israeli territory,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
Why Israel answers the critical questions and presents the essential reasons why Israel matters to God, to Christians and to the world.
