The rocket alert system detected a fourth launch, and security forces were searching for the projectile’s landing site.

This week has seen numerous rocket attacks on Israel‘s southern region. The barrages did not result in any injuries, but the escalation prompted Israel’s UN Ambassador Ron Prosor to send a short but stern letter to Secretary Ban Ki-moon and to the members of the Security Council in which he condemned their silence on the rocket attacks emanating from the Hamas-ruled territory.

“Since I last wrote to you ten days ago, ten more rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israeli communities.?” wrote Prosor. “Ten days, ten rockets, and not one condemnation.”

“The Red Alert siren in Israel’s southern towns should raise red flags in the Security Council. The Council must act, and do so immediately,” he demanded.

Prosor concluded by saying, „It is time for the Council to speak with one voice and act with one purpose against the terrorists that operate with impunity in the Gaza Strip.”

The UN has long been silent on the issue of Gaza rocket fire aimed at Israel. Messages on the matter are only issued during major rounds of conflicts between the IDF and Gaza terrorist groups, if at all.
