Over fired 580 rockets towards Israel since Friday, many of them falling short and landing in Gaza.
As Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) an other Gaza-based terrorist groups step up rocket fire at Israel, Gaza residents are again victims of misfired missiles.
On Saturday, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) released a video showing a rocket fired by the Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorists hitting Palestinian residents in Jabalia, Gaza. The misfired rocket killed 5 children and left 15 injured, the Israeli media reported.
Palestinian terrorists have used their bases in Gaza to fire close to 580 rockets towards Israel since they escalated the conflict on Friday — with only half of them reaching the Israeli airspace. “Iron Dome, which is used when the incoming projectile is headed for populated areas, intercepted 200 of them. In addition, 120 projectiles fell short and landed in the Gaza Strip,” The Times of Israel reported Saturday.

Israeli officials on Saturday released evidence revealing PIJ’s hand in the Jabalya rocket strike. “We have in our possession videos that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that this incident was not the result of an Israel Defense Forces’ strike. Israeli security forces did not strike in Jabalya in the past few hours,” Israel’s Public Diplomacy Directorate said a statement obtained by the Legal Insurrection.
“It has been irrefutably proven that this incident was the result of the misfiring of a rocket launched by Islamic Jihad. Following reports in Palestinian and international media, an investigation took place which unequivocally showed that this was not an Israeli strike but rather, a rocket launched from within the Gaza Strip which fell in the heart of Jabalya,” the agency added.

The Legal Insurrection has repeatedly highlighted mainstream media’s complicity in covering up war crimes committed by Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups (our posts debunking similar media narrative during the Gaza conflicts 2021 and 2014).
As we reported last year, close to a “two-thirds of the casualties reported in Gaza were Palestinian terrorist operatives” during the Gaza conflict of May 2021.
As usual, CNN and other mainstream media outlets are again playing the useful idiots for Palestinian jihadis by parroting its propaganda meant to smearing Israel as an aggressor, without caring about the facts on the ground:
Hey @CNN, we fixed this headline for you.

Rocket Sirens Sounded Near Tel Aviv, Jerusalem
Despite the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepting most of the incoming Gaza rockets, some of them still slip though and hit residential areas in southern Israel.
“A rocket launched from Gaza into Israel by Palestinian terrorists hit a residential home in the southern city of Sderot, causing extensive damage to the structure,” the Israeli TV channel i24News reported Saturday. “The family, who took refuge in the shelter, were unharmed.”
Since Palestinian terrorists began firing rockets on Friday, sirens have been reported in southern and central Israel, including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
“Rocket sirens sound in the southern part of Tel Aviv and the central cities of Rishon Lezion and Holon, for the first time since violence escalated between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group on Friday,” The Times of Israel reported Friday.
“Incoming rocket sirens are sounding in communities on the outskirts of Jerusalem. There are initial reports of Iron Dome interceptions over the area,” the news outlet noted in a separate report Sunday morning.
IDF Target’s Islamic Jihad’s Leadership
While Palestinian terrorist outfits fire indiscriminately — hurting Gazans and Israeli civilians alike, the IDF precision strikes are effectively eliminating the terrorists masterminds in Gaza.
After killing top PIJ operative Tayseer Jabari on Friday, the IDF eliminated another senior commander, Khaled Mansour, of the same jihadi outfit Saturday evening.
“The operation to eliminate Khaled Mansour, along with his assistant Ahmed al-Madlal, was carried out in cooperation with the Shin Bet, according to the military,” the Israeli broadcaster Ynet News reported.
“IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen Ran Kochav said Mansour held the parallel position to Tayseer Jabari, who was the group’s northern command chief and who was killed in a strike on Friday, effectively kickstarting the latest military campaign in the Strip, dubbed Operation Breaking Dawn,” the news outlet explained.
GAZA ROCKETS AGAIN TARGET TEL AVIV, CENTRAL ISRAEL
On Sunday afternoon, Palestinian terrorists again fired a fresh barrage consisting of over 50 rockets toward Tel Aviv and central Israel. No casualties were reported so far. The Times of Israel reported:
The Magen David Adom ambulance service says it has not received any reports of direct injuries from the rockets fired from Gaza toward Tel Aviv and the surrounding metropolitan area.
MDA says it treated several people who were lightly hurt while running to protected areas, as well as a number of people suffering from shock.
According to Channel 12 news, two rockets were intercepted above Tel Aviv and another was intercepted above Ben Gurion Airport.
