In retaliation for a recent Israeli airstrike that killed a senior Islamic Jihad commander, more than 250 rockets were fired from the long-disputed Gaza strip into Israel as violence escalates in the region.
“They know we will continue to strike them without mercy,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said of the Iranian-backed Islamic Jihadist in Gaza, according to the Los Angeles Times. “They have one choice: either stop these attacks or absorb more and more blows.”
Israel’s airstrike killed Bahaa Abu el-Atta, who Netanyahu believes was the “mastermind” behind recent attacks against Israel, according to NBC News. The country does not intend to continue a confrontation in Gaza and has limited its strikes to Islamic Jihad, a militant Iranian-backed group. Their strikes have killed 18 Palestinians.
No Israelis have been killed in the conflict, largely due to Israel’s Iron Dome defense system, which has intercepted 90% of the projectiles. Forty-seven Israelis have been wounded. A few homes and a major highway were damaged.
“The barrage of rockets being fired by Islamic Jihad in #Gaza at Israeli civilians after our surgical strike on their commander shows exactly why he was targeted in the first place,” said the Israel Defense Forces on Twitter.
The US has stood beside Israel during the attacks.
“The United States condemns the barrage of rockets on Israeli civilians….
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
