Within the first week of 2011, more than 10 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel’s southern communities.
In response to these attacks, the IDF struck several terror-related sites. The Israeli Air Force (IAF) targeted and hit a terrorist activity center in the northern Gaza Strip as well as a weapons manufacturing facility in the central Gaza Strip, both belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization.
Throughout the year 2010, over 235 Grad missiles, Qassam rockets and mortar shells were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory.

Every time you hear the word “Gaza” spoken of by the world’s major media outlets the discussion is always about “the Israeli blockade” and the “poor suffering people of Gaza” who are being “brutalized” by the Israelis.
The world seems to have forgotten that Israel is still being attacked from the Gaza Strip and that it has said repeatedly that if these attacks stop the blockade will be loosened and gradually eliminated.
News That Matters thought it’s a good time to remind people of this simple fact.
