Earlier today rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel but they were intercepted by the IronDome defense system.

At least six rockets were fired Sunday night from the Gaza Strip toward southern Israel, prompting sirens to sound in multiple regions. One of the rockets landed in Rahat, in the Bnei Shimon Regional Council, a second rocket exploded near Be'er Sheva and a third exploded in the Lachish Regional Council. Three more rockets were fired toward the Ashkelon Regional Council, two of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

This could be retaliatory action.

So out of six missiles the oh so famous Iron Dome that America is paying for only got two missiles? Seems like the Iron Dome is very overrated.

That's the way it usually is. Funny how Hamas has enough brains to build a rocket but then be stupid enough to launch it where it will hurt no one.

Ever stop to think that some of the people in Palestine wants to stop Israels constant theft of land? Not to mention the constant human rights violations and war crimes Israel commits in Gaza.

Rockets arent exactly reliable. Theres a reason that most military powers use high tech missiles nowadays, and not the cheap and easy to make rockets.

I'll bite. What exactly was the latest War Crime, theft of land or human rights violation by Israel that triggered this rocket attack from HAMAS????? Surely these rockets were in response to some RECENT event, not just a random terror attack, no? I looked for any events that recently preceded the rocket attack, I found NOTHING.

What do you have???

the system is set up to only target missiles that will impact inhabited areas,so if they arent gonna hit any thing important they just let them hit. pretty sure iron dome is the most advanced form of missile defense that has been revealed by any nation to date (land based as i am unsure how it compares to our naval anti missile systems)

so that might explain why only two of them were intercepted

As long as Israelis are living on Palestinian land that is excuse enough for continuing the war against the invaders. Remember Israel is still destroying families homes on a daily basis that is enough to make anyone strike back.

So you got nothing, eh? Figures.

Can't you call out the Palestinians for bad actions ever???? When you have a ceasefire in place by both parties and ONE side (Hamas) violates it, how is it still the other sides (Israel) fault when NOTHING triggered the violation. It's not like Israel attacked Hamas in violation of the ceasefire with no reason and then Hamas responded in kind. That I could understand and would criticize Israel for the violation with no merit and wouldn't blame Hamas for responding in kind.

This one is on Hamas, yet another bonehead move. And people wonder why Israel doesn't want to negotiate with them..........
