How Will Israel Respond as Rockets Rain Down on South?

The IDF struck multiple targets belonging to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) on Monday after over 15 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip. This latest attack on Israel’s south is now in its second day.

The rockets fired on Monday reached the Netivot area for the first time since the PIJ began firing rockets on Sunday. (The photo here shows police searching a children’s playground where rockets landed.)

In an Army radio interview Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to bring back security to the residents of the South. He stated, “…I’m talking about a war. I only go to war as a last option, but we have prepared something you can’t even imagine.”
