Israel has been accused of ‘overreacting’ after it fired a projectile into the moon in a show of strength against what it calls ‘moon-dwelling stone throwers’.

The move comes as Israeli reports showed a small space rock was found in the desert a few miles west of Jerusalem.

An Israeli official told us, “A small stone fell from the sky in a clear provocation of our people. Some have called it a ‘meteorite’, but the only place up there it could have come from – the only logical explanation – is that we are under attack from the moon and such aggression will not go unmet.

“We have a right to protect ourselves, and a duty to protect our citizens, so if that means firing a rocket into the moon in return for the stone they threw at us, then so be it.

“Maybe this will make them think twice next time.”

Critics have already spoken out against the Israeli moon attack, insisting it was far from a proportionate response.

A UN spokesperson condemned the move, telling us, “If someone on the moon threw a rock at Israel – and let me be clear we have yet to see any actual evidence of this – the firing a multimillion pound rocket at it in return is a bit much, no?

“But don’t suggest they have a reputation for overreacting, they’re likely to lash out if you do.”
