Israel Under Attack from Gaza Again

Israel suffered the largest rocket attack in years today. Thank God, no one was killed:

Israeli communities near southern and northern Gaza have come under heavy rocket attack on Wednesday evening. The IDF said at least 30 rockets had been fired in the largest attack since 2012's Operation Pillar of Defense.

The IDF said eight rockets hit urban, civilian areas. One rocket landed in Sderot, according to police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld, although there were no immediate reports of casualties...

The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for Wednesday's attack, saying that over 90 rockets had been fired toward Israel, a spokesman for Al-Quds told Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

Remember, these rockets are coming out of the unoccupied territories -- Gaza, the place that Israel left years ago.
