Updates about the current conflict between Israel and Gaza - Day 8

The last 24 hours, the fights are still going on. We still see rockets being shot at Israel (about 190 rockets since morning), Israel still attacks in Gaza, no talks about ceasefire yet. When will we have a ceasefire?

24 hours of Day 8 to the fighting, more than 3400 rockets shot at Israel so far!

Look at the photo below, a unique unbelievable photo of the Rockets fired from Gaza (on the right side) being shot down by the Israeli Iron Dome system (on the left side) almost "star world" kind of look

And now, few more updates about what is going on in day 8 of this conflict:

Internal riots more concerning than rockets, says Ashdod hospital head

Riots pitting Israeli Jews and Arabs against each other are even more concerning than rockets from Gaza, according to Dr. Erez Barenboim, general-director of the Samson Assuta Ashdod Hospital.

Some Arab workers at the hospitals had to be escorted out of their villages by the police and were offered housing in the city until the situation calms down, he said.

“We are a microcosm with Jews, Arabs, Christians and Muslims working together. Last week we had a Muslim holiday and most shifts were covered by Jewish workers, and this week we have a Jewish holiday and Arab workers are doing the same thing,” the doctor said.

Hamas tried to attack Israel's gas installations

Hamas fired rockets toward Israel’s gas installations in the Mediterranean after launching attacks from Gaza last Monday, causing them to be placed on their lowest level of functioning, though none of the rockets came close to reaching the installations.

Israel has several gas installations, with the Tamar gas field’s production platform standing just 25 kms. off the coast of southern Israel.

How much does Hamas’s rocket arsenal cost?

In the ongoing fight between Israel and Hamas about which side can outlast the other and who will seem more desperate for a ceasefire first, a key issue is cost.

It is well-known that Iron Dome interceptors cost far more than the Hamas rockets they shoot down.

But Israeli officials have already arrived at the conclusion that the Iron Dome is worth the price and that the more relevant comparison is how much Israel would pay in lives and destruction of property if there was no Iron Dome.

Yet, what is the real cost for Hamas’s continuing to fire rockets – and does this vary depending on long-range rockets that can hit Tel Aviv and central Israel in comparison to short-range rockets whose range is limited to along the Gaza border?

Of the almost 3,000 rockets fired over the last week – out of the 14,000 that Hamas is believed to have – only a few hundred have been the long-range rockets.

Reports estimate that the main short-range Hamas rocket called the Qassam costs anywhere from $300 to $800 each.

There is much less public information about the cost of Hamas’s longer-range rockets such as the R-160, M-302D, M302-B, J-80, M-75, Fajr-3, Fajr-5 and a second-generation M-75.

Anti-Israel protests: Riots break out in Berlin, Paris and London

AMSTERDAM — Many thousands of people protested against Israel in major European cities over the weekend as the latest Israel-Gaza conflict reached new heights. Several events featuring antisemitic rhetoric and rioting.

In Brussels, London and Vienna dozens of men were filmed at rallies on Saturday shouting in Arabic: “Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning.”

In Germany, many thousands protested Israel’s actions in Gaza. At the Berlin rally Saturday, police ordered the protesters to disperse citing Covid-19 measures. They were pelted with stones, bottles and rocks, resulting in multiple injuries, Tagesschau reported.

In Paris, thousands disobeyed a ban on protests that police said would endanger public order. Police used water cannons to disperse the crowd Saturday.
