1 Killed, More Than 20 Wounded, in Massive Gaza Rocket Barrage Against Southern Israel

One person was killed and at least 20 others were wounded in a massive Palestinian rocket barrage targeting southern Israel on Monday.

More than 400 projectiles were fired by terrorists in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip into the Jewish state in a coordinated assault that began at around 4:30 p.m. local time.

Homes in the southern cities of Sderot, Netivot and Ashkelon were hit by rockets.

In Ashkelon, a man — a Palestinian in his 40s from the Hebron area — was killed and a woman was critically wounded.

Air raid sirens sounded as far away from Gaza as communities near the Dead Sea.

There was also an anti-tank missile strike on an Israeli bus near the Gaza border, in which an IDF soldier was seriously wounded.

The Israeli military said it was responding to the attacks with strikes throughout Gaza. At least three Palestinian terrorists have been killed in these strikes so far.

On Monday evening, the IDF announced it had bombed more than 70 Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror targets.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
