The mortar attack on the Erez Crossing Sunday occurred while Arab Palestinian patients were being transferred to Israel to receive medical treatment.
Israeli jets bombed a suspected smuggling tunnel along the Gaza Strip border with Egypt on Monday in response to early morning rocket and mortar attacks by Palestinian terror militias.
The mortar attack on the Erez Crossing Sunday occurred while Palestinian patients were being transferred to Israel to receive medical treatment. Such rocket attacks have fallen off in recent months as Hamas tries to recover and rebuild its arsenal following the IDF’s ground operations in Gaza in January.
Meantime late last week, IDF chief-of-staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi told naval academy graduates of the importance of a powerful military to protect Israel.
«The challenges that we face remind us that even in these times, we must continue to reinforce the power of the IDF as a strong and independent army that can succeed in deterring and overcoming all threats, near and far. In this struggle we are measured not only by our success in preventing terrorism but also on our ability to salvage our principles while in combat, the heritage of the IDF and the moral code of Israeli society».
During the Israeli Military operation into Gaza in December 2008, it was Hamas who blocked the aid sent to victims of Islamic terror in Gaza. The truth is that thousands of Gazans have tried to enter into Israel, in a bid to escape the fascist terror organization.
Israels response have been that an exodus of Gazans from Gaza is not the solution. The Arab Palestinians, or whatever you chose to call this people, have to get rid of the joke of Hamas. The PLO and Hamas knows what is at stake. To avid Gazans entering Israel to get medical treatments, they even fire rockets at their own Muslim brothers. Thats extreme evil, and exactly what Radical Islam is all about.
