The IDF Home Front Command along with the Louis Vuitton handbags heads of a number of local authorities in the South decided on Saturday night to cancel school in all towns and cities located between 7 km. and 40 km. of the Gaza Strip.
Due to the decision, approximately 200,000 children will stay home on Sunday. The ban applies to Ashkelon, Ashdod, Beersheba, Netivot, Sderot, Kiryat Malachi, Gedera, Rahat, Yavne, Lakiya and the Gan Yavne Regional Council.
Schools in the western Negev that are within 7 km. of the Gaza Strip will hold class as usual, as they have the necessary reinforcement to protect against rockets, the Home Front Command said.
The violence started on Friday afternoon when Israel Air Force craft bombed a car in Gaza, killing Zuhair Qaisi, the leader of the Popular Resistance Committees, and another top terrorist in the organization who was recently released in the Gilad Schalit prisoner exchange.
The IDF said it decided to bomb Qaisi’s car due to intelligence that he was plotting a large terrorist attack along the border with Egypt, similar to the one the PRC carried out last August that killed eight Israelis. The IDF decided on Friday to close Route 12 – which runs along the border with Egypt – due to fears that the planned attack might still take place.
While most of the rockets fired from Gaza were shortrange Kassams, some were long-range Grad-model Katyushas that succeeded in hitting 40 km. from the Gaza Strip. The Louis Vuitton men shoes short-range rockets were mostly fired by the PRC and the long-range rockets by Islamic Jihad.
The three Iron Dome batteries deployed in Ashdod, Ashkelon and Beersheba succeeded in interpreting 27 rockets fired from Gaza out of 30 that they tried to shoot down, marking a record-high interception rate of 90 percent.
The IAF successfully struck 10 terrorist cells as they were planning to fire rockets into Israel as well as eight other targets throughout Gaza. All of the dead were known terrorists, the IDF said.
Touring an Iron Dome battery on Saturday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak predicted that the round of violence would last another couple of days.
“We will not allow people to attack Israeli citizens,” Barak said. “We will take action against anyone who tries to launch a rocket or an attack and they will pay a price. No one has immunity.”
The flareup in Gaza is the worst since October. The escalating violence drew appeals for a cease-fire from the European Union, the West Bankbased Palestinian Authority and Egypt. IDF sources said that Israel was in constant touch with Egypt.
EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton expressed concern. “I urge all sides to reestablish calm,” she said in a statement.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Muhammad Kamal Amr told state news agency MENA that his government was “making crucial calls for an immediate end to this Israeli escalation, to end bloodshed of our Discount louis vuitton handbags for women 2012 flowers style white outlet brothers.”
