Israel

In July and August, Hamas, the terrorist organization that controls Gaza, fired thousands of rockets at Israeli population centers. Millions of Israelis lived with the reality of having to seek refuge in bomb shelters, some with only 15 seconds notice of incoming rockets and missiles. In response to Hamas's incessant attacks, as any government would, the Israeli government authorized "Operation Protective Edge." The Operation was aimed at destroying Hamas missile launchers and other terror infrastructure while seeking to restore stability and quiet to Israel's civilian population.
