13-Mar-12: Ceasefire? Perhaps but that's a rocket that just exploded in the center of Netivot
INN. It crashed into the heart of the southern town of Netivot (population 27,000), landing in a parking lot, terrifying residents and reminding Israelis throughout the country that a ceasefire with terrorists is not something on which to build your plans.
Fortunately there are no immediate reports of injuries in the attack. The police bomb squad and emergency services are on site to assist residents.
Some 200 rockets have been fired at Israeli civilians and communities since Friday by the missile-rich, terror-addicted "militants" of Gaza. Reuters says "an Egyptian-brokered truce between Israel and militant groups in the Gaza Strip began to take hold" this morning. The million or so sleep-deprived civilian residents of Israel's south are withholding judgement for now.
