- Rocket fire from Gaza steadily increasing (Elder of Ziyon)
"Tonight, as Israelis started their outdoor Lag B'Omer celebrations, a rocket from Gaza exploded in the Sdot Negev regional council. After a two-month lull following Operation Pillar of Defense, the terror rocket attacks have been steadily increasing:
The 14 so far this month include 10 rockets and 4 mortars. This does not include the Grad rockets from the Sinai to Eilat on April 17, or mortars that fell short in Gaza. Nor does it include the sporadic but also increasing fire from Syria.
By the way, tonight's rocket was described in the Fatah-leaning Palestine Press Agency as landing in "the settlement of Netivot in the south of the occupied Palestinian territories." Of course, this is within the Green line, showing that even the "moderate" Palestinian Arabs consider all of Israel to be "occupied"."
