Netanyahu Visits Southern Israel After Rocket Attacks

After a weekend of sustained rocket attacks near Israel’s southern border with Gaza, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited residents there to offer reassurance. Netanyahu described the situation there as “something that is hard to accept, but we know that we are in a long-term battle for Zionism . . . and we are determined to win.”

  • Meanwhile, the Israeli Air Force struck a pair of Hamas observation posts in Gaza suspected of launching incendiary kites and balloons — another terror tactic also plaguing the southern border.
  • In fighting along the Syrian-Israel border, a Russian airstrike on a school serving as a shelter killed at least 10 civilians. Hundreds of Syrian refugees continue to approach Israel’s northern border in an attempt to find sanctuary.
  • A month after the U.S. withdrew from the U.N. Human Rights Council, America’s ambassador Nikki Haley denounced the council’s agenda as being against Israel’s existence.
