Six people were injured in the attack.
The J-80 rocket was fired either by Hamas or by Islamic Jihad from Southern Gaza and flew nearly 120 kilometers. It hit Moshav Mishmeret, which is just north of Kfar Saba. This heavy rocket was used deliberately to hit an Israeli civilian target. https://t.co/Fa0uz6xvEY

The conflict between Hamas and Israel has been getting old for years, but now is not the time to blow off the news. Hamas is having internal strife as its citizens protest living and economic conditions in the Gaza Strip. To garner international support and save face for failing to help their own people, Hamas is trying to start another war.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is caught between a contentious election at home and the need to get his own international support, particularly from the United States. He’s in Washington DC now to meet with President Trump, who has offered his support and endorsement for the long-time Prime Minister.
Hamas would love nothing more than for Netanyahu to be gone, replaced by a leftist who will wheel and deal for “peace” with the Palestinians regardless of the cost. If that happens, the toll will be great on Israel and the world.
