Raketbeskjutningen återupptogs nu på morgonen

Under onsdagen sköt Islamsk Jihad 220 raketer mot Israel från Gaza. Under natten har det varit lugnt, men nu på morgonen återupptogs raketbeskjutningen mot södra och centrala Israel.
I Israel förbereder man sig för att raketbeskjutningen kommer att fortsätta hela dagen. Det betyder bland annat att skolorna i de mest utsatta områdena kommer att håla stängt.
Israel har inte under natten utfört några attacker mot Gaza och de attacker som utfördes i går riktades mot mål som tillhörde Islamsk Jihad. Hamas verkar inte ha deltagit i raketbeskjutningen hittills och Israel försöker välja sina mål noggrant så att Hamas inte skall få orsak att delta i striderna.

It was joined by similar announcements by the municipalities of the larger southern cities of Ashkelon, Ashdod, Beersheba and Yavne, as well as the central cities Bnei Brak, Ramat Gan, Rishon Lezion, Rehovot, Givatayim and Modiin.

But the Home Front Command said late Tuesday night there were no security restrictions preventing schools and businesses in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area and Shfela region from operating normally."..."

"Following the rocket fire the IDF struck a Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) target in the central Gaza Strip, killing one Palestinian identified as 38yr old Khaled Moawad Faraj, a field commander with the terror group.

“A short while ago an aircraft struck the cell which launched rockets from Gaza towards Israel this morning,” the military said in a statement, adding that “a hit had been identified.”..."
