Reminding us of their obsession with death - ours, their own, that of their children - the Palestinian Arab terrorists of the Gaza Strip fired rockets into Israel while the entire nation's attention was on the funeral of three Israeli boys.

Around 7:30 pm, this (Tuesday) evening, while the funeral in the city of central Israel city of Modi'in was still underway, five rockets (according to Times of Israel, quoting the IDF) were fired into Israel from Gaza. Two crashed and exploded in the Eshkol region, the same landing zone as several of this morning's rockets. It appears that all of them struck open areas, causing minimal property damage and no personal injuries. This of course was not the intention of the terrorists. For them, rocket fire is an entirely indiscriminate form of attack. Any injury, any damage, on the Israeli side is its own reward. This is why we call them terrorists.

An hour later, around 8:30 pm tonight, an additional rocket was fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip. Reports say the Tzeva Adom (Color Red) anti-missile warning system sirens were heard in the Sha'ar HaNegev region. We are still awaiting word from the IDF as to where it crashed and landed.

Associated Press, quoting the IDF, says 10 rockets have been fired into Israel so far today.
