Israel Is In Flames

Here’s what will happen next.

The turmoil comes as rockets from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continue to rain down on Israel, prompting retaliatory strikes by the Israeli military.

Gil Gabai told Army Radio that the mob attacked her husband, who is now hospitalized, with stones and rocks before one stabbed him in the back, all the while shouting “Allahu Akbar” – or “God is great” in Arabic.

Lod, a mixed Arab-Jewish city near Israel’s main airport, has seen unprecedented rioting by Arab residents, with hundreds of cars torched and Jewish families forced to pack up a suitcase and leave their homes with police escorts.

Three synagogues and several Jewish-owned shops were torched.

A pregnant woman in the 39th week of her pregnancy was seriously hurt in the rioting.

Lod Mayor Yair Revivo compared the violence to the Nazi Kristallnacht pogroms. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday condemned “bloodthirsty” Arab rioters, saying the rioting amounted to a “pogrom.”

Separately, an Arab man and his daughter were killed overnight Tuesday by a rocket in the same city.

Rivlin, usually known for fostering coexistence between Israel’s Arab and Jewish populations, said: “The sight of the pogrom in Lod and the disturbances across the country by an incited and bloodthirsty Arab mob… is unforgivable.”

Riots spilled over in other mixed cities in Israel, including Acre, where a man was critically hurt after having rocks hurled at him by Arab rioters, and Jaffa, where a synagogue was torched Wednesday evening and cars smashed with baseball bats. Jewish mobs were galvanized into their riots on Wednesday evening in the city of Bat Yam, smashing store fronts belonging to Arabs.

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz called up 10 reserve Border Patrol companies to boost police efforts to control the confrontations on Thursday morning.

“We’re in a moment of emergency,” Gantz said. “At this time, there’s a need for massive reinforcements of the forces on the ground, which will be sent immediately to impose law and order.”

Meanwhile, the IDF has intensified its strike on Hamas, and said the possibility for a ground invasion into Gaza was “on the table.”

Close to 700 targets belonging to Gaza-based terror groups have been struck since the start of the operation three days ago.

The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted about 90 percent of the Gaza-launched rockets targeting population centers in Israel.

Around one fifth of the 1,700 rockets over the past two days fell short of their target and landed within Gaza, the IDF said. More than 80 Palestinians have been killed by retaliatory Israeli airstrikes, Gaza’s Hamas-run Health Ministry said.

According to the IDF, dozens of those killed were members of terrorists, some of whom were actively launching attacks on Israel when they were killed.

Others, including at least three children, were killed by errant rockets that fell short of their target, Israel and a Palestinian human rights group, Defense for Children, said.

Seven Israelis have been killed from rocket fire, including a soldier who was hit by an anti-tank missile, a five-year old boy, two elderly women, and an Arab Israeli and his daughter.
