It’s a good thing the Israelis withdrew from Gaza. The peace that has ensued has been wonderful.
From AFP, with thanks to JE:
Israel has carried out a fresh air strike and threatened more ground operations in the Gaza Strip in a bid to halt Palestinian rockets, one of which narrowly missed the Israeli defence minister’s home.
The hardline Islamic Jihad movement claimed responsibility for firing three missiles at daybreak towards the southern Israeli town of Sderot, which lies just over the border from the Gaza Strip.
Although no one was injured in the attacks, one of the makeshift Qassam rockets struck a residential building just metres from the home of defence minister, Amir Peretz, causing extensive damage.
The army has been pounding northern Gaza with artillery and has carried out a series of air raids in recent weeks in order to put a permanent end to the firing of the notoriously inaccurate missiles.
