Palestinian terrorists hurled their rockets at Israel in an attempt to kill as many Jews as possible, instead they killed two fellow Muslims.
Israel and Hamas clashed again on Wednesday, in the bloodiest conflict between the two sides since a 2014 war in Gaza. In the most intense aerial exchanges in years, six people were killed in Israel and at least 48 in the Gaza Strip.
Hundreds of Israeli airstrikes were carried out in Gaza, while Palestinian militants fired hundreds of rockets at Israel’s central and southern regions. International concern grew as a result of the fighting that the situation could spiral out of control.
In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Hamas launched a massive rocket barrage on southern and central Israel, killing a man and his daughter outside Lod and sending hundreds of thousands of people fleeing to bomb shelters from Tel Aviv to Beersheba.
Even though the mainstream media declares Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups to be the victims, it appears that the terror group is unconcerned about who they hit.
A Muslim family’s house in the city of Lod, central Israel, suffered a direct hit by a rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza. 1 family member confirmed dead, another member with serious injuries.
Later the daughter died too!
Police said the victims were a father, Halil Awad, 52, and his 16-year-old daughter, Nadine. The mother, who was also in the car, was seriously injured, medics said.
“I know it sounds like a cliché and they always say that the best people are the ones who lose their lives, but Nadine really was a very, very special girl,” her principal Shirin Natur Hafi told the Reshet Bet radio station.
“She was in 10th grade, studying in the biology-chemistry track. She had dreams of changing the world. She was such a special girl, such a talented girl. She wanted to conquer the world,” Hafi said of her student.
As Times Of Israel reported over 1,050 rockets and mortar shells have been fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel since the outbreak of fighting on Monday evening, with 200 failing to clear the border and landing inside the enclave. Those barrages included over 400 rockets fired deep into Israel in two huge waves on Tuesday evening and from about 3 a.m. on Wednesday. IDF Spokesperson Hidai Zilberman said the Iron Dome air defense system had an interception rate of between 85 and 90 percent of rockets heading toward populated areas.
In response, the IDF launched strikes on upwards of 500 targets in the Gaza Strip, aimed at Hamas personnel, weaponry, and infrastructure, Zilberman said.
Asked how much longer the IDF believed Hamas had the ability to fire rockets at central Israel, the spokesman said that the terror group was likely depleting its arsenals, but could still carry out large barrages in the coming days.
