Ceasefire still in effect

"No, we're not actually going to fire."

Well, thank God for that “ceasefire” that is already “in effect” – announced by the Egyptians. I mean – without it, we might actually have rockets raining down on Israeli cities.

Oh, wait:

Two Grads were fired by Palestinian gunmen in north Gaza toward Ashkelon Saturday morning. One rocket hit near an educational institution in the southern coastal city, and a number of residents were treated for shock. The second rocket landed in an open area outside the city. There were no reports of injury or damage.

At around 8:45 am the Color Red alert system, which warns of incoming projectiles, sounded in the southern Israeli city, followed by reports of loud explosions.

A Qassam rocket fired from Gaza at approximately 10 am landed in an open area within Eshkol Regional Council limits. There were no reports of injury or damage.

Overnight Saturday, a Qassam rocket fired from Gaza landed in an open area within the Sdot Negev Regional Council’s limits. There were no reports of injury or damage in that attack either.

Despite the ceasefire declared following Israel’s recent military offensive in Gaza, Palestinians have continued firing rockets toward Israel on an almost daily basis.

Ridiculous.
