Israel: missiles from Gaza and Tel Aviv responds with fighter planes
15 Hamas targets hit
During the evening of September 10th, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was speaking from the stage in the town of Ashdod. Late yesterday afternoon he had declared his intention to annex the Jordan Valley to the West Bank if he is re-elected in the upcoming September 17th elections. A change that would radically change the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. According to the leader, this plan would give the Nation "secure and permanent borders" to the east, but it would make any future Palestinian state into a patch of land surrounded by Israel.
Suddenly a thunderous roar interrupted the electoral rally: two missiles were launched from the Gaza Strip towards the Tel Aviv positions and the alarm sirens started ringing. The crowd dispersed as Israeli army guards pushed the premier to a safe haven.
The "Iron Dome" mobile weapon defense system, capable of intercepting short-range threats from 3 to 72 km in all weather conditions, neutralized the two rockets and almost immediately Israel responded with its fighter planes that hit 15 Palestinian targets during the night: a military base, the naval force and a tunnel declared to be terrorist.
