Missile Strike On the Eshkol Region
At 11:33 am, red sirens for incoming missiles sounded for the following communities near Gaza: Avshalom, Benny Netzarim, Dekel, Yavul, Yated, Neve, Pri Gan, Shadi Avraham, Shlomit, Talmei Yosef.
Ten minutes later it was reported that a greenhouse in the Eshkol region was hit–and a 50-year-old man inside had to be treated for trauma.
In the meantime, the government has closed the Taba Crossing into the Sinai–and strongly urged any Israelis vacationing in the area to return home immediately.
Two hours ago, it was reported that Israeli jets struck an area south of Rafah from which the missile was fired.
Think about that for a moment.
