After eight days of bloodletting in the terrorist Hamas initiated hostilities with Israel, a ceasefire has been announced.
The blows Israel suffered from the nearly 1,500 mostly Iran provided missiles and rockets were greatly softened by her Iron Dome Missile Shield System. Although no infrastructure damage, five Israelis lost their lives from the few missiles that got through.
On the other hand, Israel’s firm response has had devastating consequences on the Strip’s infrastructure and, as of now, the loss of 162 lives and many, many more injured.
