IDF Says at Least 100 Hamas Rockets Hit Within Gaza

The Israel Defense Forces has counted at least 100 rockets fired by Hamas as striking within Gaza, publishing a map of the militants’ under-reported own-goals.

IDF Spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner on Wednesday said on Twitter, “Have you heard? #Hamas are launching rockets at….. #Gaza over 100 times in 9 days.”

An analysis by blogger Elder of Ziyon showed that of the 192 rockets fired on Tuesday by Hamas and counted by the Gaza NGO Safety Office, the IDF said 122 rockets struck Israel and 26 were intercepted by the Iron Dome, leaving 44 Hamas rockets striking within Gaza.

The blogger said, “Of course, 44 rockets can do a lot of damage and kill a lot of people. Reporters on the scene in Gaza have yet to talk about this or even admit the possibility that some of the casualties they are highlighting may have been killed quite directly by Hamas or other terror groups.”
