Well, that took even less time than usual — making it even clearer than it was already that the truce offer itself was just an attempt to buy a respite for the jihadists and get Israel to put its guard down. “Rockets hit Israel, which says truce broken,” from AP, June 24 (thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist):
JERUSALEM – Police say three Palestinian rockets have hit southern Israel and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s office says the cease-fire that took effect last week has been broken.
Islamic Jihad militants in the Gaza Strip says they carried out the attack to avenge an Israeli military raid that killed one of their fighters in the West Bank early Tuesday….
The West Bank is not formally part of the truce. But Islamic Jihad says it “cannot keep its hands tied” when its “brothers” in the West Bank are being targeted.
However, the Gaza Strip’s ruling Hamas group says it remains committed to the truce.
