An Egyptian-brokered cease-fire began Sunday evening at 11: 30 p.m. local time taken between Israel and the Iranian-backed terrorist militia referred to as Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) after two days of fighting where Israel had the clear upper hand.
PIJ fired a huge selection of rockets at Israel including at the major cities of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv none which caused any direct casualties, because of Israels Iron Dome system, which knocked down rockets targeted at the countrys population centers.
One PIJ rocket landed on a house in the Israeli town of Sderot, however the family was sheltering of their homes safe room.
The Iron Dome receives some funding from the U.S., which includes obtained the machine from Israel. Some pro-Israel advocates noted that several members of Congress voted against new Iron Dome funding after last years war between Israel and Palestinian terrorists.
Israel’s Iron Dome air immune system has intercepted a lot more than 95% of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad rockets fired at Israeli cities and towns, saving countless lives.
420 Democratic and Republican members of Congress voted to greatly help fund it.

Some PIJ rockets killed and injured Palestinian civilians.
Meanwhile, Israel destroyed a lot of the PIJs command structure and eliminated significant portions of its weapons caches, while also attacking observation posts and underground tunnels.
In the ultimate moments prior to the cease-fire, the days of Israel reported, each side launched several final attacks.
Experts remain puzzled as to the reasons PIJ would care to confront Israel now, minus the participation of Hamas, the terrorist group that controls the Gaza Strip and which allows PIJ to use. The lopsided result will hurt Irans image in your community.
