Israel bombs residential buildings in Gaza in second day of airstrikes A rocket launched by Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip on Saturday fell short of its target in Israel and hit a Palestinian home within the Strip, killing several children, Israeli military officials said.
Palestinian media blamed Israel for the strike near a mosque in the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza, which saw seven people killed altogether, including four children.
But Israel Defense Forces officials said that no strike had been carried out in that area and further added that the military’s rocket detection system clearly showed the rocket being launched only to misfire and end up exploding inside the refugee camp.
“On our radar, we see the launch and impact and can see it was them failing and hitting themselves,” a spokesman said.
A second official said: “We have videos that prove beyond doubt that this is not an Israeli attack. It has been unequivocally proven that it was a failed Palestinian Islamic Jihad rocket launch.”
Israel’s Channel 12 broadcast a video showing the botched rocket launch. Breaking news: a terrorist rocket misfire from Gaza has landed in Jabaliya (Gaza) and killed 9, including children. Despite that, Islamic Jihad is blaming Israel! The IDF investigated and confirmed there was no IDF operation in that area for hours before the attack. pic.twitter.com/75PNAUkp4T — Adam Milstein (@AdamMilstein) August 6, 2022 Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s spokesperson Keren Hajioff said the “world should be outraged at this terrorist group targeting innocent Israelis and killing innocent Gazans.”
“Islamic Jihad is killing Palestinian children in Gaza. One in four rockets fired from Gaza towards Israel – lands inside the Gaza Strip,” she noted. “Iran’s proxies – including PIJ – have a long history of hiding behind civilians to target Israeli civilians.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
