UPDATE:

Israel strikes 320 targets in the Strip since launching Operation Pillar of Defense 

The Israeli Air Force struck some 70 targets in the Gaza Strip in the past hour, the IDF Spokesman’s Office said shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday. Among the targets, the IDF statement said, were underground medium-range rocket launching pads. The most recent blitz of air strikes brought the total number to well over 300.

Palestinians have fired over 275 rockets from Gaza into the South since the IDF launched its operation. Two rockets triggered an air raid siren in Tel Aviv, marking the first time that a real siren was sounded in Tel Aviv since the Gulf War in the early 1990s.

It’s been about 4 years since the Israelis put the whoop-ass on Hamas following a barrage of rockets from Gaza and a string of other Hamas provocations. Much of Gaza’s infrastructure was smashed, hundreds of Hamas fighters were killed and it took Hamas 4 years to rebuild.  Now they’re back to firing rockets at the Israelis. The IDF needs to put at least a six year hurtin’ on them. Re-building all of that busted stuff (roads, power plants, etc…) should keep the Hamassholes busy for a few years.

Three Israeli civilians were killed and two seriously injured when rockets hit two buildings in the southern Israeli town of Kiryat Malachi early Thursday morning. Yediot Ahronot reported that two infants and a four-year-old boy are among the injured and have been hospitalised. Over 115 rockets have been fired into Israel since Israel’s ‘Pillar of Defence’ military operation began with the targeted assassination of senior Hamas leader, Ahmed al-Jabari on Wednesday afternoon. Four Grad rockets reached the Beersheva area. Barrages have also hit the towns of Gan Yavne, Ofakim and the city of Ashkelon, causing damage but no injuries, with the city of Ashdod also targeted. In each case residents receive a few seconds warning with air raid sirens to take shelter before the rockets hit.

    The front page of Foxnews.com reads “Brink of War”. The bastards have fired 200 missiles into Israel, just in this round, if that’s not “War”, WTF is it?

    Kill everyone associated with Hamas, down to the last line grunt or shopkeeper who pays them money to kill Israelis. Kill every last one of them, and maybe there will be peace.

    @ Iron Fist:
    At least between Israel and Hamas. After all, dead men can’t wage war.

    IDF Targeting 70 Underground Launching Sites in Gaza
    Published on: November 15, 2012

    During the past hour, during a rapid and coordinated military strike, the IDF targeted approximately 70 underground medium range (up to 40 km) rocket launching sites in the Gaza Strip. Direct hits were confirmed.

    The sites that have been targeted were positively identified by precise intelligence collected over the course of months.

    The aim of targeting these sites is to significantly impair the rocket launching capability of terror organizations in the Gaza Strip.

    Hamas has turned the Gaza Strip into a frontal base for Iran, terrorizing the residents of the State of Israel and forcing them to live under unbearable circumstances.

    The IDF will continue to target sites that are used to carry out terror attacks against Israeli citizens.

    Anyone besides me feel that Hamas has been emboldened by the recent USA presidential election outcome?

    Hamas Song
    —apologies to Peter, Paul and Mary and “Wedding Song”

    We have now unleashed a vengeance through our control of the skies
    You must comprehend, when you attack, a Hamas leader dies
    The wreckage of your auto burns with your mortal remains
    We’ve asked you to stop shooting rockets, but you don’t refrain
    You’re blown up…You’re blown up…

    We evacuated Gaza in a gesture of good will
    But the terrorists who rule you continue to fight us still
    You won’t learn from experience so we must teach you again
    All that this course of action brings you is a fiery end
    You’re blown up…You’re blown up…

    Well, so what really is the reason for this long unending strife?
    Do all of you really love dying more than you love life?
    We’d offer to live in peace with you, as we’ve done before
    But every such overture your leaders just ignore
    And you’re blown up…you’re blown up

    Yes, the wreckage of your auto burns with your mortal remains
    We asked you to stop shooting rockets, but you won’t refrain
    And you’re blown up…You’re blown up…

    The rocket barrage against Israel is their fireworks celebration of BO’s reelection.

    Without removing Hamas rule in Gaza it’s a bloody waste of ordnance and fuel.

    Why the fuck can’t Israel just raze Hamastan to the ground, and then annex it and the West Bank?

    /yes yes I know, rhetorical

    I always use two “s”‘s when I’m talking about Hamassholes.
