Over the past two days terrorist organization Hamas, in partnership with Islamic Jihad, launched more than 300 rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israeli communities.
Over 300 rockets were launched from Gaza at Israel this evening. In response, we are striking terror targets throughout the Gaza Strip. pic.twitter.com/2rfIZv2wT8— Israel Defense Forces (@IDFSpokesperson) November 12, 2018
The goal wasn't just to target Israeli soldiers, but to murder civilians.
LOOK: This is one of the multiple Israeli homes hit by rockets fired from #Gaza. Yes, HOMES. Plural. Terrorists in Gaza are targeting Israeli civilians. We are targeting the terrorists. pic.twitter.com/hrApfCZQfm— Israel Defense Forces (@IDFSpokesperson) November 12, 2018
Last night, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza fired a barrage of rockets into Israel. One of the rockets struck this house in Ashkelon. This was the scene when Israeli first responders entered. It is graphic, but it’s important we show it.— Israel Defense Forces (@IDFSpokesperson) November 13, 2018

We struck Hamas’ military intelligence HQ in response to the 300+ rockets that terrorists in #Gaza fired at #Israel.— Israel Defense Forces (@IDFSpokesperson) November 12, 2018
This is where Hamas' intelligence operatives gathered information to launch attacks on Israelis.

Outrage from the international community? Hardly.
???? Gaza Palestinian assault on Israel:— Hillel Neuer (@HillelNeuer) November 13, 2018
• 400 rockets fired at Israeli civilians
• 67 Israelis injured
???? UN Human Rights Council reaction:
• 0 statements
• 0 emergency sessions
• 0 condemnatory resolutions
• 0 commissions of inquiry
Egypt is currently negotiating a ceasefire.
But while the international community refuses to condemn the action of Hamas, the United States is paying close attention.
Terrorists in Gaza are again attacking Israel with tools of war. These rocket & mortar attacks on Israeli towns must be condemned by all. Israel is forced once again into military action to defend its citizens. We stand with Israel as it defends itself against these attacks.— Jason D. Greenblatt (@jdgreenblatt45) November 12, 2018
