Gaza Is being Attacked Again

An Israeli air strike on the Gaza Strip killed five Palestinians belonging to the Islamic Jihad militant group, Gaza emergency medical services spokesman Adham Abu Selmeya told reporters. 20 other people were also reported to have been injured in the attack. The escalation started on Saturday morning when Israel attacked Gaza Khan Younis Camp.

BREAKING NEWS : 5 PALESTINIANS WERE KILLED SOUTH OF GAZA STRIP AFTER ROCKING THEM BY 2 MISSILES AT LEAST COMES FROM DRONES . ALL OF THE MARTYRS BELONGS TO ISLAMIC JIHAD ARMED WING . ONE OF THEM IS A LEADER IN ID ,GOD BLESS OUR MARTYRS . NAMES OF MARTYRS :
1- AHMED SHEIKH KHALIL LEADER
2-MOHAMED ASHOUR
3-ABED KARIEM SHATAT
4-BASEM ABU ATTAH
5- MOHAMED AL SORDI
The Other Two Maryrs names still to be confirmed –Hani Siliman Salamah

Islamic Jihad — which is not directly affiliated with Hamas — said it will take revenge for the killings.

“Our response shall be in the depths of the Zionist entity,” it said in a statement.

A spokesman for Islamic Jihad also said one of the fatalities was a local field commander, Ahmed Sheikh Khalil.

“Today it was a great loss for us in the Islamic Jihad,” he said. “The size of our retaliation will equal our loss.”

The Israeli air force confirmed the attack and defended its move by claiming that the militants were planning to launch rocket missiles into Israel. They also said Islamic Jihad had fired a missile into the city of Ashdod in southern Israel on Wednesday.

I always wonder where wisdom is when attacks of this nature happen in Palestine, I refuse to believe that Palestinians in Gaza Militias will act against their own well being, if knowing that there is unfinished business with Israel regarding the second part of the swap of Palestinians Prisoners, why will they risk an escalation in the already shaky relations between Hamas and Israel, don’t they know that Israel always use the minimum excuse to attack Gaza.

Islamic Jihad swears that their rockets attacks were in retaliation for Israel incursion in Gaza, and Israel swears that she attacks in retaliation for rockets attacks. The truth sometimes is clearer than words, reality have showed us in the past that Israel is usually the perpetrator and the first striker.

Who benefits when Israel attacks Palestinians Villages? Israel of course. So we wonder why will Palestinians want to be killed? Right? It’s common sense.

Indeed, a few hours after the attack on its people, Islamic Jihad fired a rocket into Israel, which injured one person.

The Israeli military also released a statement saying it had “attacked three terrorist sites in the Gaza Strip, as well as an arms factory in the south of the territory.” One of those targets reportedly belonged to Hamas..

Let’s be clear in the wording, for Israel The whole Gaza enclave is a terrorist spot, and she sees every Palestinians as a valid target, does not matter is the target is 5 years old

Israel directly blamed Hamas for the renewed violence. The Same way that Israel IOF’s can not control the criminal behavior of the settlers inside the Occupied territories, the same way Hamas can not control all the anger inside Gaza. There are dozen of militias groups inside Gaza that act in their own.

A spokesman for Hamas, Fawzi Barhoum, replied that Israel is “fully responsible for all the results of this dangerous escalation.”

The incident threatens to postpone or cancel the planned release of 500 more Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails. (Israel had previously freed about 500 Palestinian inmates in exchange for the release of Israeli solider Gilad Shalit, who had been held by Hamas for five years.) Some of the freed prisoners also belonged to Islamic Jihad.
Israel is trying to renegade in the deal they signed for the release of their soldier, and will use any excuse to brake the truce, would not be the first time that Israel promise something and renegaded on her promises. Palestinians were waiting something like this to happen expecting nothing from Israel once Gilad Shalit was safe in Israel the promises are not expected to be fully comply.

There are some other news that Tunnels were hit in the Rafah border where a girl was injured.

Nabil Abu Rudeina, a spokesman for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, urged Hamas and Israel to avoid an escalation in a statement published on the Palestine News & Info agency that is also called Wafa.

He called on Hamas “not to give Israel an opportunity to exploit the situation and relaunch a war on Gaza.”

Israel and Hamas carried out the first stage of a prisoner swap on Sept. 18 that freed Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit after more than five years captivity in Gaza.

The Israeli army said today it holds Hamas responsible for all attacks emanating from Gaza. Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007, ending a partnership government with Abbas a year after winning parliamentary elections.

Israel Bombs Tunnels injuring a girl, The total toll so far of this attack 7 Palestinians and 20 injured – Free Gaza Today – Please pray for Gaza. They are under massive attack from Israel. At least 20 air raids in 12 hours killing and injuring many people and children 😦 the crossings are being closed)
