BEIT HANOUN, Gaza Strip – Israeli aircraft and artillery bombarded open areas in northern Gaza on Saturday as part of an intensifying campaign against Palestinian rocket fire on Israeli border areas….
Artillery shells were fired after Palestinian militants sent a homemade Qassam rocket slamming into southern Israel, the Israeli military said. Israel uses artillery shelling more sparingly than air strikes because it is less accurate and poses a higher risk of harming Palestinian civilians.
Palestinian Interior Minister Nasser Yousef, meanwhile, told his security chiefs that “firm and serious action” would be taken against facilities used to manufacture or store weapons, his office said in a statement released Saturday.
But there was no talk of disarming militants, as Israel has demanded, and the statement said Palestinian security forces “would not enter any house looking for weapons.”
In other words, the jihad will go on as before.
