Palestinian Rockets over Israel

(Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs) Between Saturday and Sunday, May 4-5, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas launched over 600 rockets and mortars at Israelis from Gaza. Four Israeli civilians have been killed in the barrages, dozens have been wounded, and the lives of many more have been shattered. The terrorists deliberately aimed their rocket attacks at civilian centers and struck homes, a factory, and even a kindergarten and a hospital in the city of Ashkelon. Hamas is committing a crime against humanity, indiscriminately attacking Israeli civilians while operating from within Gaza's population - using Gazans as human shields. Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas have carried out hundreds of horrific suicide bombings, shootings, stabbings and ramming attacks, killing and maiming thousands of people in Israel. Both are backed by Iran and have declared their intention to destroy Israel and establish an Islamic caliphate in its stead.
