Gaza Ceasefire shaken by Qassams
What many feared in Sderot and the kibbutzim of Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council happens: is the ceasefire shattered?
Ceasefire seems shakier than ever as Palestinians launch three Qassam rockets from Gaza. House damaged in Sderot, two women suffer from shock. Olmert: This is a blatant violation of ceasefire. Islamic Jihad vowed reprisal earlier for IDF operation in West Bank
The rocket alert system was activated in Sderot and the western Negev at around 3:45 pm. IDF officials reported that the rockets were fired from the Beit Hanoun area and that the army failed to locate the rocket launching cell.
David Turgeman, whose parents live in the second house, told Ynet, "In the past few days we felt better about the situation, people started going out, but today everything changed.
"My parents' house sustained a direct hit once before, and my house was also hit by a Qassam in the past… All the windows in my parents' house flew out of place. We're lucky they weren’t home. It's a shame we reached this situation once again."
Roy Vazana from Sderot told Ynet, "It was clear that the truce would last more than one week, and this is a fact. It's either us or them. There are no choices here. It's time to launch an operation."
Here are some further details,I quote:
..."Israel Defense Forces troops operating in the West Bank city of Nablus killed two Palestinian militants early Tuesday morning."...."In a statement released from the West Bank following the raid, Islamic Jihad said that "the reprisal for this noble blood will be in the depths of the Zionist entity, God willing."
It has to be remembered "The agreement on the ceasefire extend to the Gaza Strip only, leaving the IDL free to operate in the West Bank."
