Hospital Moves Infants to Bomb Shelters!

Ashkelon’s Barzilai Hospital is moving children and mothers to bomb shelters and is sending home as many patients as possible as the Gaza missile bombardment continues and moves northward.

Gaza terrorists launched a particularly heavy assault on southern cities on Monday morning, firing off 10 rockets in a single hour. Rockets were fired at Be’er Sheva, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Kiryat Malachi and other towns. The city of Gedara, south of the edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv came under attack Monday. Warning sirens shrieked less than 10 miles from the Rehovot-Ben Gurion Airport area. The IDF retaliated by attacking a terrorist cell in northern Gaza Monday afternoon.

The Iranian-backed Islamic Jihad has been responsible for many of the more than 150 rocket attacks carried out since Friday.

Hamas has rejected any chance of a ceasefire until Israel promises to stop attacking “ticking bomb” terrorists who prepare rocket attacks on Israel. The government and military have categorically stated that the IDF will carry out pre-emptive measures to protect the country.

The Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority said it is asking the United Nation to condemn Israel’s counterterrorist actions, which the PA terms “terror.”

The latest eruption of attacks on Israel has not won Hamas media and international sympathy like that it enjoyed during the Operation Cast Lead campaign against Gaza terror three years ago.

In addition, the brutality of the Syrian regime against its civilians has moved the IDF strikes off the top headlines even on the pro-Hamas Al Jazeera website.

The Palestinian Authority has reacted to the latest round of SELF-DEFENSIVE, RETALIATORY attacks by calling on the United Nations to condemn Israel. The PA claims IDF strikes in Gaza constitute ‘violence, terror and crimes against the Palestinian people.’

For this month, although I may post sometimes, I have no real free time, so I ask your forgiveness for not getting to your blogs or replying to comments much of the time. As soon as I can (probably post-Pesach/Passover) I will be back.

Bomb shelter in children's playground – camouflaged so as to be less terrifying.

No children should have bomb shelters in their play grounds! That is just horrible!
It is sad to say, that I am learning about the situation here from you, Leah - our media do not inform about the bombing at all....

A sign of humanity (the shelter painting) amidst the terrible reality of war.

The shelter would be scary to me no matter how it was comouflaged but it seems to be necessary in this area and they must make it less scary for the children. It must be strange to grow up with this as part of your everyday life, but maybe not so strange if generations have lived this way.
