Summary of rockets fired into Israel – July 2011

Here is a summary of all rockets fired from the Gaza Strip by various militant groups in July of 2011. The south of Israel is always being bombarded with these rockets who are blindly targeted to civilian populations with the hope of hitting as many civilians as possible. The different groups in Gaza (among them are popular Resistance Committee, Abu Al-Qumsan Brigades and many more [approxmiated at around 16 different groups], including Hamas – the ruler of the Gaza Strip).

Click here for a full documented list of these rockets, as well as Israel’s respond to them.

Overall, 19 rockets were fired into Israel during July. Thankfully there were not injuries and the total damage is fragments hitting a house from the outside.

Unfortunetly, the same cannot be said for August 2011, who to this day, has 11 rockets and 5 people who were injured, which prompted Israel to redeploy the Iron Dome defense system. This is happening less than two months before the Palestinians request for an independant state from the United Nations, a resolution that will surely pass.
