The Israeli forces have succeeded in reducing the supply of rockets, but they haven’t reached the inland missiles.Â “They have yet to go into the densely populated areas,” Mr. Heller said. “They’re hoping to persuade Hamas to agree to a ceasefire without doing this.
* Good luck with that…!
(IsraelNN.com) Gaza terrorists responded to the United Nations Security Council’s call for an immediate ceasefire early Friday morning with a renewed barrage of rocket fire directed at southern Israel.
At least 30Â missiles have been fired at Israel since 7:00 a.m., when theÂ now-familiar daily routine of rocket fire beganÂ with four long-range Grad missiles aimed at Be’er Sheva, the “capital of the Negev.”Â Residents had about 45 seconds’ warning of the attack, thanks to the blaring Color Red siren that wailed through the city and was broadcast over the radio.

Tens Of Thousands Of Egyptians Protest Gaza War
Moderate Muslims, all of them! You don’t believe me? Don’t take my word for it:
ALEXANDRIA, Egypt (AFP)–More than 50,000 Egyptians demonstrated in Alexandria after Muslim Friday prayers against Israel’s two-week-old onslaught in the Gaza Strip, witnesses and security officials said.
The demonstrators, led by members of parliament affiliated with the opposition group the Muslim Brotherhood, chanted slogans against the Israeli offensive and what they called Arab complicity in the blockade of Gaza.
The protesters chanted “Down with Israel, and with it every collaborator,” and “Gaza excuse us: opening Rafah is not in our hands,” referring to the Rafah border crossing with Gaza, which Egypt has refused to open permanently.
A security official said at least 50,000 demonstrators had assembled in Mediterranean city after Friday prayers.
An AFP correspondent said thousands of riot police had tried to prevent the demonstration but gave up because of the number of demonstrators.
The government has refused requests from Hamas and its regional allies to open the Rafah border crossing, citing a 2005 agreement that required the presence of European Union monitors and Palestinian Authority representatives at the passage.
