At Least 20 Rockets Fired Against Israel After ‘Cease Fire’ Takes Effect


Isaiah 48:22, “‘There is no peace,’ says the LORD, ‘for the wicked.’”

By YAAKOV LAPPIN – “Rockets fired from Gaza continued to land in Israel on Wednesday night following the commencement of the US-Egyptian brokered cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Some ‘Code Red’ sirens sounding in the South appear to be set off by celebratory rocket fire in Gaza, Channel 2 News reported. Israel Radio reported that some 20 rockets were fired from Gaza since the announcement of the cease-fire.

Prior to the announcement, Gazans fired over 80 rockets at various cities and communities in the South on Wednesday, as the IAF continued to strike terror targets in the Strip.

Four IDF soldiers were lightly injured after a mortar shell exploded in the Eshkol Regional Council area Wednesday evening. The IDF announced hours after the incident that a reserve officer was critically injured in the attack as well.” Read more.

Cease-Fire Between Israel and Hamas Off To A Shaky Start – “A cease-fire between Israel and Hamas was announced Wednesday after days of bloody fighting and deaths on both sides. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Amr announced the cease-fire, which took effect at 2 p.m. ET. However, it appeared that the cease-fire got off to a shaky start. Five minutes after it took effect, four Grad rockets were fired at the southern city of Beersheva. Within minutes, rockets were also fired at other southern towns and cities.” Read more.

Will Israel-Hamas Cease-Fire Hold? – “Any cease-fire agreement that requires Hamas to stop rocket fire from Gaza into Israel will be tenuous because rival militant groups will try to shatter it, Middle East analysts say. Palestinian groups such as Islamic Jihad, the Popular Resistance Committee and others ‘are Iranian sponsored and will undoubtedly try to scuttle this’ by firing rockets into Israel, says Jonathan Schanzer, a former terror financing analyst at the Treasury Department and now vice president of research at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a Washington think-tank.” Read more.

    Something stinks about this whole thing. Bits and pieces of info are coming out, but did they just hand over power in the south to Egypt, and their giving power in the north to Turkey? Turkey just formally appealed to nato for support on the border with Syria. Daniel is coming alive. There is a very interesting video of the head of Hamas interview, with Christiane Amanpour, today too. Well it will take a little bit to sort out, but something is definately rotten.
