Islamic terrorists in Gaza violate cease fire...again

On Aug 25, various Islamic terror groups in Gaza agreed to yet another ceasefire with Israel. The ceasefire between Israel and Gaza based terror groups have already unraveled, it lasted about eight hours. Hundreds of rockets and mortar shells have been fired into Israel since Aug 15.

Islamic terror groups in Gaza want constant efforts to attack Israel, and see ceasefires as a form of weakness.

Quote:
A TRIPLE terror attack on a quiet scenic road running down the Egyptian border to the resort of Eilat, on the Red Sea, has left at least seven Israelis dead and some thirty injured. The Israeli army says seven attackers died in a running gun battle with anti-terror police commandos.The assaults began at noon on Thursday August 18th with small-arms fire on a bus, mainly carrying off-duty soldiers, headed towards Eilat. The driver managed to speed away before any lives were lost, but a military vehicle racing to the scene was hit by a roadside bomb. Soon after, another civilian bus and a car were attacked at a spot nearby, this time with anti-tank missiles.

Here are the events since Aug 15...

August 15, 2011: Two 122mm rockets were fired from Gaza towards Beersheba. There were no injuries.

August 17, 2011: Egyptian police raided a terrorist camp in Sinai and arrested two people. This is part of a larger police operation to shut down growing Islamic terrorist operations in Sinai.

August 18, 2011: Islamic terrorists from Gaza attacked several vehicles carrying Israelis and killed eight people. The vehicles were travelling on a highway near the Egyptian border. Some of the Palestinian terrorists were wearing uniforms resembling those worn by Israeli troops. The Islamic terrorists have gotten out of Gaza (not hard to do, with the tunnels, and Egyptian border guards willing to ignore things) and travelled with their weapons to the point, near the Israeli beach resort of Eliat. Israeli forces began pursuing the attackers, and during that chase an Israeli aircraft fired on Egyptian police who were also pursuing the terrorists. Five Egyptian policemen died, and Israel later apologized for that. The Israeli pursuit did manage to kill several of the Islamic terrorists.

August 20, 2011: Hamas fired several 122mm rockets at Beersheba in southern Israel, killing two Israeli soldiers.

August 21, 2011: Gaza Islamic terror groups said they all agreed to a ceasefire, mainly because the last three days of Israeli attacks had done a lot of damage to them.

August 22, 2011: The latest ceasefire with the Islamic terror groups in Gaza lasted about eight hours, as a dozen more rockets were fired into southern Israel overnight. The problem is that there is always one Islamic terror group in Gaza that will not agree to a ceasefire, and Hamas is either not able, or willing, to destroy the Islamic terror groups that keep breaking these ceasefires.

August 24, 2011: The latest ceasefire between Israel and Gaza based terror groups unraveled as four rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel, wounding an Israeli infant. Israeli warplanes quickly began hitting terrorist targets in Gaza.

August 25, 2011: After two days of Israeli bombing, the various Islamic terror groups in Gaza agreed to yet another ceasefire with Israel, to begin tomorrow. In the previous 24 hours, Israeli air strikes had done enormous damage to Islamic radical groups, as well as killing nine and wounding 30 (mostly members of these Islamic terror groups.)

It's a shame the Israelis have to act with such restraint and fight with one hand behind their backs. I'd just as soon see them settle the Hamas problem, once and for all.
