Southern Israel is under attack tonight with several longer range rockets pounding into various cities causing injuries and severe damage. At least 9 long range Grad rockets hit Israel hours after the Israeli Air Force took out a group of terrorists preparing for yet another rocket launch.
Islamic Jihad took responsibility for the ongoing rocket attacks demonstrating faster rocket launching techniques which are typical to Hezbollah's method of attack.
Exchanges of fire are common between southern Israel and the Gaza strip controlled by Hamas, but this is the worst round in months.
One of the rockets hit a school yard. Luckily the school was empty so there were no injuries or causalities, but schools will not open tomorrow in several communities under fire.
Officials in Israel emphasized that Israel is not looking for escallation but is committed to protecting its citizens. Other estimated this round of fighting won't last long.
As events are unfolding what's clear is that Palestinians terrorists are specifically targeting civilians in Israel while putting civilians in Gaza in danger.
