Israel Hits Gaza with 2 Rocket Launchers

This article is about Israel attacking Gaza early Monday morning on October 28th with to rockets. The first rocket did not hurt anybody, and neither did the second rocket. Israel did this to send a political message for them to stop terrorizing the country and say that they will get payback if they do get terrorized again. Israel plans on setting off bombs underground in an underground tunnel they found the previous week.

This event relates to SW Asia having conflict with other countries around it because there has been lots of conflict throughout the last couple hundred years, due to everything from wars to bombings to rocket launchers. This event connects to historical events because every little thing a country does makes a difference in the world and will eventually lead up to something big. This relates to religious conflict because most people who live in Gaza are Muslim and most people who live in Israel are Jewish. Each of the countries fight for their religion, especially when other people try to take it away.
