Sirens Sound in Jerusalem, Rockets Hit Nearby

Reports that areas near Jerusalem have been struck by rockets from Gaza

Print Email

Apparently just minutes ago, as the City of Gold prepares for Shabbat, the quiet was breached by sirens. Many are reporting that areas near Jerusalem have been struck by rockets.

Hamas has also just tweeted this:

Al Qassam Brigades launch two M75 homemade missiles towards occupied Jerusalem #gaza #GuzaUnderattack #ShaleStones #Hamas #Resistance

There are also reports that Gush Etzion in the West Bank, which has a massive Palestinian population, is nearest to where the two rockets fired from Gaza landed.

We’ll keep you updated.

We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

    I think I remember Y’srael pilots using 2-ton concrete blocks dropped on some Arab war plant, instead of explosives. Di some serious damage from that height, and speed. Maybe a like strike could be arranged as “peaceful,” non military weaponry “air inspection tour” for Gaza? Oh! I didn’t just write “that,” did I!!!

    Oh! And remember Y’srael Pilots dumping screaming pigs on an Arab airfield?!! What a porker day those swine-hating swine had!

Firing at Jerusalem? Al Quds? Islam’s third most holy place? A city populated by Jews, Muslims and Christians? Seems to me killing Israeli Jews takes precedent over the prospect of killing innocents and destroying religious symbols.

It would be nice if a missile hits the dome, maybe it could be arranged????

Flatten Gaza. Give 25 hours for women and children to evacuate to Muslim Brotherhood ruled Egypt, and then wipe the terrorists off the map. For too long we have witnessed the tragic resu;ts of Israeli good will and peace overtures in handing Gaza to the Arabs. Enough is enough!

PhillipNagle says:

This is the result of Israel ignoring the daily rocket attacks in southern Israel. These current attacks on Jerusalem and Tel Aviv require retribution that should have been done long ago.
