HAMAS ROCKET THREAT: 40% of civilians in Israel are in danger of Hamas rockets

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman: “Tonight, Iron Dome proved once more its efficiency in protecting the civilians of southern Israel. Gaza, under Hamas’ rule, has turned into a hub of rocket terrorism jeopardizing innocent Israelis in the south of Israel. The IDF response was precise, swift and efficient in eliminating terror capabilities that only exist in order to terrorize, kill and maim Israelis.”
