The Islamic Jihad has threatened to escalate its attacks on Israel later in the day after Bahaa al-Ata, an Islamic Jihad commander who as eliminated by the IDF earlier in the day is buried.

The Islamic has so far fired some 40 rockets at southern Israel and the Tel Aviv area. No Israelis have been injured in the attack. Several of the rockets have been intercepted by the Iron Dome defence systems.

Egypt is reportedly mediating between Israel and Gaza in an attempt to stop the fire, but the Islamic Jihad has told them to stay out of the fray.

President Rivlin said: “We stand behind the security forces, who have been working for the success of this morning’s operations for a long time. I know that they, and the Israeli government that approved the operation, have Israel’s security, and only that, in their minds.

This is no time for political squabbles, and those who do so bring no credit to themselves. It is time to stop such statements immediately. Israeli citizens – please listen to the life-saving instructions of the IDF Home Front Command and take good care of yourselves.”
