The terrorists – militants – unhappy people compensating for something - broke the ceasefire this evening with 3 rockets fired at Be’er Sheva, a city of 200,000 (with no military facilities in the city). They followed up with a heavy rocket bombardment of many Israeli cities, towns, and villages following a few hours later. Our city was targeted multiple times, as was Jerusalem (we are on that flight path). One home in town was hit with shrapnel from a rocket interception, damaging a retaining wall.
BOOM. Shook my windows with no siren. That means it was probably on it’s way to Jerusalem and intercepted near us.
Three of my children are having bad reactions. One with a near panic attack and won't go to sleep, one is obsessing watching multiple channels and online info sources, jumping and shouting about every bit of info, and one has gone hyper nasty ripping everyone's heads off (but did go to sleep).
Here’s other comments that applied…
-- “Hamas are incapable of observing a ceasefire because they exist to fire. Would anyone expect ISIS to cease their fire? Or Al Qaeda?”
-- “Some of the Red Alert apps aren’t working. Here’s what I recommend:
. for iPhone / iPad, RED Red Alert System.
. from a browser, http://IsraelSirens.com”
-- “I always give masked gunmen the benefit of the doubt.”
-- “Don't let news outlets get away w/ saying the ceasefire "collapsed." It didn't collapse. It was deliberately blown up by rockets from Gaza.”
-- “Dear Israel bashers: When rockets rain down on Israeli woman and children, do you want Israel to: A. Do nothing? B. Stop the rockets?”
-- “Remember that time Israeli soldiers beheaded a Muslim and broadcast the video? Me either.”
-- “This isn't a war of civilizations. ISIS and Hamas aren’t a civilization. They’re the paradigm of barbarism.”
-- “My Father (not mine, the source of this comment) used to say: "They would gladly slit their throats if they could only get blood on your shirt and ruin it"
-- “Guys, I'm starting to think maybe Hamas doesn't want a ceasefire.”
