Yeah real surprise there, islamic terrorists doing what islamic terrorists do best. And of course Commie News Network tries to legitimize them, calling them militants, instead of what they really are: Jihadists. And the leftard liberals eat it up like pigs at a trough, denouncing Israel for defending itself at every turn.
Militants fire rockets into Israel after cease-fire
JERUSALEM (CNN) — Militants fired six rockets into southern Israel and exchanged gunfire with troops in northern Gaza Sunday, hours after Israel declared a unilateral cease-fire in the Palestinian territory, an Israeli spokesman said.
The Qassam rockets were fired into Sderot at 9 a.m. — seven hours after Israel’s cease-fire went into effect. The rockets did not injure anyone, and Israeli aircrafts destroyed the rocket launcher soon afterward, an Israeli military spokesman said.
An hour or two before the rocket attacks, Palestinian gunmen opened fire on Israeli forces in northern Gaza, the Israeli military said. Troops returned fire.
Israel launched an offensive in Gaza just over three weeks ago, with the stated intent of stopping the barrage of rockets — primarily the short-range homemade Qassam rocket — fired from the territory into southern Israel by Hamas fighters.
Palestinian medical sources also pulled 30 bodies from rubble in Gaza on Sunday, adding to the death toll from Israel’s 22-day offensive in the area.
“If Hamas chooses to still launch rockets, we’ll answer back and we’ll answer back harsh,” said Avital Leibovich, spokeswoman for the Israel Defense Forces Sunday. “It’s really up to Hamas. Hamas will be accountable for any launching and every terror activity from the Gaza strip.”
Israel also announced Sunday it would open an emergency treatment center at the Erez crossing point from Israel to Gaza for civilians who have been injured in the fighting. It will be “fully equipped and staffed” and Palestinians requiring more involved treatement will be sent to hospitals in Israel, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
The three-week conflict has killed more than 1,200 people in Gaza and injured more than 5,000 more, many of them Palestinian civilians, according to medical sources in Gaza City. They said 410 children have died.
