In a celebratory mood over the Muslim Brotherhood victory in Egypt, Hamas resumes its murderous jihad against Israel. “Rocket Attacks Resume on Southern Israel,” by Chana Ya’ar for Israel National News, June 24 (thanks to Voice of the Copts):
Palestinian Authority terrorists resumed firing rocket attacks on southern Israel Sunday afternoon.
Three short-range Qassam rockets were launched at the Eshkol Regional Council district area by Gaza terrorists at about 4:30 p.m.
One of the missiles exploded in a residential area, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, but residents of the area had managed to reach their bomb shelters in time.
No one was physically injured, authorities said, although residents with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) had symptoms triggered by the attack….
“Israel issues warning after swarm of rocket attacks,” from the Vancouver Sun, June 25 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his military is ready to use “greater force” to halt rocket fire from the Gaza Strip. Despite a truce agreed on Wednesday, 20 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Saturday, injuring an Israeli factory worker. Another three were fired Sunday. The homemade Qassam rockets landed mostly in uninhabited areas, suggesting they were designed as a display of force rather than a serious attempt to up-grade the conflict. They were answered with three Israeli air strikes in which two Palestinians were killed and 10 injured.
For the first time in more than a year, Hamas has claimed responsibility for the missiles, apparently abandoning a policy of passive resistance.
