Muslim School in Jerusalem Teaches Children to Seek Death - Mini-Cast Lead II Continues; Rocket Damages Greenhouses
No one was inured in the greenhouse attack. Terrorists from Hamas-controlled Gaza have escalated rocket fire in the past several weeks, firing dozens of missiles and mortar shells at Israeli civilians and soldiers in Gaza Belt communities, causing several injuries.
Two weeks ago, a rocket a direct hit on a kibbutz kindergarten.
The IDF continued its policy of retaliating after every attack, and planes bombed a smuggling tunnel near the Egyptian-Gazan border city of Rafiah and bombed a Hamas post. Until last month, Israel has refrained from directly striking Hamas terrorists unless they were ”ticking bombs.”
Spokespersons for the military confirmed that the air force struck “centers of terrorist activities.”
The increase in terrorist attacks has reached levels not seen since the months preceding the three-week Cast Lead counter terrorist campaign two years ago. Foreign media continue to incorrectly report that most of the Gaza casualties in Cast Lead were civilians. Hamas recently has admitted that several hundred of the people who died in the three-week battles were members of its terrorist organization.
