2-Jul-14: About those mortars fired into southern Israel this afternoon...

Ynet in a report posted at 3:50 pm this (Wednesday) afternoon says three mortar shells fired from Gaza landed in open areas in the Eshkol region. These follow several volleys fired from Gaza into southern Israel yesterday. The IDF Spokesperson's Office says there have been five mortar attacks since midnight last night. And from Gaza itself, the GANSO people said some hours ago that "07/02/2014 | 07:30 |
MU, 02 JUL: Overnight, Pal. ops. fired 7 rockets".

Think mortars are child's-play? Arab-on-Arab mortar fire yesterday in Iraq killed six people. Arab-on-Arab mortar fire in Syria on Monday killed at least seven people and wounded 30 others in the north-western province of Idlib. Ukrainians were killed and injured in mortar fire on their turf today as well.

All in all, we're thankful that the Gazan Palestinian Arab mortar fire on anything Israel produced no serious results today, but as we repeatedly point out that's never the intention of the Palestinian Arabs who do the firing.

Update 5:00 pm: At the Hebrew Walla! news site, they say a Qassam rocket fired from Gaza crashed and exploded in the Sha'ar Hanegev region during the afternoon hours today. No reports of injuries or serious damage.
