More missiles from Gaza

Sunday, April 17, 2011 |  Ryan Jones

Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired two Grad missiles at the southern Israel port city of Ashdod on Friday, causing damage but no injuries.

While attacks from Gaza have slowed down over the past week, they have not ceased, and many Israelis living in the south of the country continue to spend days at a time in local bomb shelters.

Over the weekend, the Israeli army released aerial surveillance videos showing Gaza terrorists firing missiles from crowded public areas and even from places of worship.

The goal is to either discourage an Israeli response, or to use the subsequent damage to civilian structures to elicit public condemnation of Israel.

Despite these cynical tactics, Israeli officials said they will not tolerate continued missile attacks on communities in southern Israel.

In other violence, a Jewish man was lightly wounded late Saturday night when the Arab residents of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan stoned his vehicle. The man was evacuated to a local hospital for treatment.

On Friday, an Israeli Border Police officer was injured when a protester along Israel's "West Bank" security fence hit the officer in the face with a stone.
