Cease-Fire Violated: Israeli Military Says 3 Rockets Fired From Gaza

Tyler Durden's picture

Well that didn't last long...


The Israeli military has declared the cease-fire broken. So this is the escalation that will enable a pent-up de-escalation buying opportunity?


As Reuters reports,

Three rockets fired from the Gaza Strip struck southern Israel on Tuesday, the Israeli military said, hours before a truce with Palestinian militant groups was set to expire.


A military spokeswoman said the rockets landed in open areas near the city of Beersheba and there were no reports of casualties. Reuters witnesses in Gaza City said they heard the sound of rockets being launched from the Palestinian enclave

Israel and Hamas are just trying to grab a few headlines.  Sorry, Ferguson is today's story with Iraq second.  Ebola is in the show position.

Woman with Ebola-like symptoms taken to hospital in Berlin - media

Source: Reuters - Tue, 19 Aug 2014 12:27 GMT

BERLIN, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Emergency services in Berlin cordoned off a job centre and took a woman with Ebola-like symptoms including high fever to hospital, German media reported, citing ambulance workers.

There was no immediate official information on the woman's identity or symptoms, nor on whether she had travelled from the epidemic area in West Africa. Reuters reporters on the scene said other people at the job-centre had been allowed to leave. (Reporting by Stephen Brown; Editing by Andrew Heavens)

Israel's puppet, Hamas, is right on time once again, giving excuse to their financier, Israel, to continue murdering women and children.

Some Jewish settler lets off three fireworks so that the Jews have an excuse to flatten more palestinian neighbourhoods.

Public service announcement. Thanks Jews!

"Do you ever see one guy from Hamas?"

Ham-as ? Sounds like the sort of thing the Jews would make up.

time for the self appointed 'chosen' people to inflict some group punishment and level more of gaza?  how many children must die for these bottle rockets i wonder? how much blood does moloch demand this time...

3 bottle rockets land in the middle of nowhere (what happened to the Iron Dome?) and kill nobody. Yep, time to blow up some more schools.

Mmm..I smell Jews around here this morning. There must be money to steal.

ZH terms for registering states: "Racism, to include any religious affiliation, will not be tolerated in ANY FORM on this site."

Does that exclude Jewish affiliation?

you either like free speech, or you're a hasbara troll cunt.

FeralSerf's picture

"Jewish affiliation" is a tribal affiliation, not a religious or racial one. So, yes, it is excluded by definition.

Hamas wants the IDF to exterminate Gaza.

It must be an ideological thing...

Like voting for Obama...twice.

Paul Craig Roberts outlines the reality in “Israel Stealing, Murdering Its Way Through Palestine – Establishment politicians, media refuse to stand up for the real victims.” Here’s an excerpt:

“Israel is always the aggressor but always takes the role of the victim. Palestinian women and children are all subhumans—“snakes,” as one Israeli politician put it—who sneak into Israel through secret tunnels (whose existence is akin to Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction) wearing suicide bomb belts and blow up innocent Israelis along with themselves while Israelis sit in cafes peacefully discussing philosophical issues and the latest news. To stop this slaughter of innocent Israelis, Israel has to blow up Palestinian hospitals, schools and civilian homes and apartment blocks.

“These unmistakable war crimes, these crimes against humanity are all ignored by the great moral arbiters of the world—the governments of the West who are shaking their fingers not at Israel but their fists at Russia.

“Western governments ignore Israel’s war crimes but not all Western peoples comply with this neglect. Many thousands of demonstrators against Israel have been in the streets in South America, London, Paris, Germany, Dublin and Israel’s own Tel Aviv. But don’t look for much reporting of these demonstrations in the American presstitute media.

“The American presstitute media is focused on those who died in the downing of the Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine, in order to blame those 290 deaths on Russia. As far as the American presstitute media is concerned, the murder of 1,200 Palestinians* is not happening or if it is, the Palestinians deserve it for responding to Israel’s oppression by firing in frustration primitive rockets that seldom, if ever, hit their targets.”

*Update: “During the nearly month-long military offensive on Gaza prior to the short ceasefire, Israel killed 448 children and injured 2,502, according to United Nations estimates. As of 8 August, the death toll in Gaza had reached 1,922.”

TS/NI  (too short/no information)

Translation: You’re wasting your time if your post does not contain facts.

The Israeli propaganda campaign, which in the US alone must cost multimillions of dollars and obviously provides for trolls on various websites, is not going to be enough to overcome its declining credibility as it uses missiles and warplanes to attack the Gaza Prison.

The reason so few Israeli civilians are hurt or killed in these amateur rock attacks is that the rockets carry so little explosives (sometimes only 5 lbs.) and with elaborate warnings Israelis can go to the next rooms in their houses or to shelters to survive these relatively minor hits. The Israeli Defense Force even admits that if you are in open territory when a rocket heads your way, you have an 80% chance of survival by just lying down on the ground, unless the rocket actually hits you.

Quite a contrast, isn’t it, with the huge explosive charges from USA-made missiles and jet airplanes blowing apart entire apartment blocks, schools, hospitals and power plants?

Hamas is Mossad.

The Palestinians have been betrayed.

Translated from Yiddish: bottle rockets fired by Mossad agents allowing us cover to continue the genocide whilst the American donkeys are distracted by a gangbanger with a death wish who got it fulfilled.

"...gangbanger with a death wish who go it fulfilled"

You are a crude,  ignorant idiot.


Infinite QE's picture

And you are a superficial CNN watching libtard. How can anyone with working brain synapses see a gangbanger, cranked up on whatever the drug of the moment is, charge at a policeman and not get a load of lead? Must be the years and years of CNN watching, GMO's that have created the level of ignorance that you possess.

NotApplicable's picture

Perhaps, but then again he might be correct. Thing is, thanks to the disinfo spin cycle that is the MSM, we will most likely never know how the altercation really went down.

So far, all details have been withheld/released for maximum divide and conquer effect.

250,000 kiilled by assad

50,000 killed by ISIS

1800 killed by israel

so which of the 3 is the genocide again ??

Infinite QE's picture

Let me add something to your pure Yiddish>English translation by THREE DAYS and counting Israel propaganda agent on ZH:

Member for
3 days 16 hours

250,000 killed in Syria by Israel-sponsored progenitor to ISIS. Documented fact. Wounded terrorists are shipped back to Israel for hospital treatment and mind control upgrades.

50,000 killed by ISIS, the Israeli creation

200+M killed by zioqueers since the early 1900's. Documented fact.


Now fuck yourself and Israel. Got it?

mister maghrebi's picture

Yes I know your mono-mania concerning jews makes you believe that every bad deed in the world is caused by jews regardless of who actually carries out the bad deeds .  Resorting to swearing further prooves my point .

Infinite QE's picture

Blah Blah Blah. Your zioqueer narrative is ending, no matter how many of you they put on forums. Holohoax, Israel, fiat, all of it. Ending. The world is waking up to who the true terrorist is. Oh, and `prooves' is spelt `proves'. Time for a bios update for your bot.

Whoever gives a thumbs down to Infinite QE's post is nothing but a propaganda spewing troll who supports zionism and the genocide of palestinians and other muslims across the middle east. If you support israel, you are a troll / shill.

Gazans should be moved to Qatar. The Americans can give up their military bases there and those same bases be used to house the Gazans.

JR's picture

The meaning of America was self-determination where a man could choose for himself his life and his future, organizing government to protect those rights. All the Palestinians had asked was self-determination, to have the land that their ancestors had lived upon. Some of those mosques in Gaza are 700 years old. And your suggestion is the suggestion of Stalin: People are expendable. Whatever hopes and dreams they have, no matter, they conflict with the ruling Israelis' greed.

Eventually, the American producers can give up everything if you have your way, even their country and cultural identity, to the Zionists. For he who owns the Fed owns the Congress and the "Chief." That is why D.C. is arming this murderous rogue state - that is why D.C. is Israel's enabler.

According to a recent report by RT, the U.S. "provided as much as 95% of the weaponry in Israel's arsenal as recently as 2009." But, hey, why should Israelis care any more about struggling Americans that have to foot the bill than they do about the Palestinians whose land they occupy?

SquadronVBF94's picture

And Joseph's tomb was nearly 3000 years old.  So just how much respect did the the Palestinians have for that?  ZERO!  They destroyed it.
