While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

Gaza terrorists fire rocket salvo at Israel's south

Original source

Israel Hayom

Sirens blared across southern Israel on Sunday as a barrage of rockets was fired from the Gaza Strip at the area. IDF officials said 21 projectiles were fired and that the Iron Dome defense system successfully engaged 10 rockets whose trajectory threatened urban areas.

The volley was apparently fired in retaliation to an incident earlier in the day during which two Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists were killed by Israel Defense Forces troops.

The Israeli soldiers killed them as they were placing an improvised explosive device on the border fence using a motorcycle.

The two terrorists were part of a squad that may have been a rogue entity within the PIJ that feels it is not bound by the calm.

Shortly before the rockets were launched on Israel, Palestinians began leaving key installations for fear of Israeli retaliation.
