Headlines Tell The Story [Updated]

After reading this headline, it tells you all you need to know about this so-called "peace-process": 

Just as Israel began the release of 26 Palestinian prisoners, 15 of them to Gaza, two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip towards Sderot on Tuesday evening.

One rocket fell within the Strip, while the other landed in an open field near Sderot. No one was reported injured.

Later Tuesday night, the Code Red rocket alarm was sounded again in Sderot, and in Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council, Israel Radio reported.

An IDF spokeswoman said searches were underway for the remains of the projectiles.

So Israel releases prisoners - even those involved in brutal murders of innocent Israeli citizens as their concession to the peace process and the thanks that they receive is rocket fire. How predictable.  

Rockets targeting southern Israel were fired from the Gaza Strip just before 10 p.m. Tuesday night. No injuries or damage were reported.
One rocket, reportedly fired at the town of Sderot, fell inside the Gaza Strip. A second rocket was fired at the Sha’ar Hanegev region, and was thought to have landed in an open area. Residents in the area told Maariv they heard a loud explosion, but the missile had yet to be located as of 10:30 p.m.

Sirens sounded in both places, and no injuries or damage were reported.
The missile fire came less than 24 hours after a Grad rocket was launched from Sinai at the Red Sea resort town of Eilat. The rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system and caused no damage. Three people were treated by paramedics for shock.


IAF Launches Early Morning Attack On Northern Gaza

The IDF launched an airstrike over the Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning, targeting rocket launching sites in northern Gaza, the IDF said in a statement.

The statement said the IAF attacked  during the night in response to two rockets that were fired from the Gaza Strip towards Sderot on Tuesday evening, just as Israel began the release of 26 Palestinian prisoners, 15 of them Gaza-bound.

"The IDF air strikes were conducted in response to the rocket launched at the civilians living in the Sha’ar HaNegev regional council yesterday (Tuesday) evening," it said.

The statement also said that Hamas, who are a known terrorist organization and the governing body of the Gaza Strip, are behind earlier rocket-fire, and the majority of terrorism emanating from the area.

The IDF vowed to "continue to operate in order to safeguard Israel’s civilians, and combat terror and its infrastructure the in the Gaza Strip,"
