|Is this the KKK or Hamas? Not much difference!|
No one was hurt in the rocket attack. The Air Force quickly retaliated, bombing a smuggling tunnel in northern Gaza and two terrorist training bases in central around midnight. Residents said the bases were operated by Hamas, according to the Chinese news agencyXinhua.
Secondary explosions were heard, indicating that the terror target was a factory for rockets or storehouse for explosives belonging to Hamas. No injuries were reported. The terror tunnel was intended to be used by terrorists to infiltrate into Israel and to execute terror attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers.
“The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians or IDF soldiers, and will continue to respond to anyone who utilizes terror against Israel,” a military spokesperson said in a statement. “The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for maintaining the calm in Gaza and for any terrorist activity emanating from it.”
Attacks on Israel have become routine the past month as Hamas fails to honor another pledge for a ceasefire. Last week, rocket and mortar attacks on Israel prompted IDF aerial and tank fire, which eliminated at least one terrorist.
Hamas is trying to avoid a repeat of Operation Cast Lead, within followed massive rocket attacks on major population centers in Israel. Instead, it has deployed a strategy of firing a small number of rockets and mortars but on almost a daily basis. Last month, a Grad missile hit Be’er Sheva for the first time since Cast Lead, causing extensive damage and sending several people into shock.
