The jihad against Israel continues without let-up, while Abbas struts and postures. From Xinhua:
A Palestinian home-made rocket landed in an open area near “a strategic site” in the south of Israel’s coastal city of Ashkelon, Israeli Radio quoted Israeli army sources on Monday.
The rocket, fired from northern Gaza Strip, caused slight damages, said the sources, adding the timing of the attack which happened early in the morning has prevented more casualties among workers who were not there at that site.
Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad (Holy War), claimed responsibility. In a statement faxed to the press, the brigades said their fighters launched a medium-range rocket on Ashkelon at about 6:00 a.m.
According to the Israeli sources, situation in Ashkelon city has been relatively quiet recently, but the Palestinian rocket attacks against southern Israel’s town of Sderot continued in spite of the ongoing military operations by the Israeli army in Gaza to curb rocket attacks.
