Gaza militant groups continue rocket attacks at Israel

GAZA, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- Several Palestinian militant groups based in Gaza claimed responsibility on Monday for launching homemade rockets and mortar shells at Israel.

The Popular Resistance Committee's armed wing said in a press statement that its militants launched a homemade rocket in the morning at the Israeli settlement of Tushiya on the borders between east Gaza Strip and Israel.

Also, the armed wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) claimed responsibility for launching a homemade rocket at the Israeli town of Sdeort, northeast of the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile the military wing of Islamic Jihad, the Al-Quds Brigades, said their militants detonated a large explosive device at an Israeli infantry force stationed east of the town of Khuza'a in the southern Gaza Strip.

They said in a press statement that the explosion from the bomb injured Israeli troops as ambulance sirens were heard in the area.

Al-Aqsa Brigades, the military wing of Fatah, also said they launched two homemade rockets at Sderot.

They said the attack was part of a campaign what they are calling "Gaza Autumn," in response to "ongoing Israeli atrocities committed against the Palestinian people."

Israeli Radio quoted Israeli army spokesman as saying that a homemade rocket landed in a factory in Sderot, causing severe damages, but no injuries were reported.

Well, considering this is reported by a CHINESE media service, and China is no friend of Israel, I think it is safe to say it was the militants.

Otherwise China would expose deception, wouldn't they?

Re: Gaza militant groups continue rocket attacks at Israel
really?

how can you expect peace when only one side gets billions in military help?

how can you expect peace when peace activists get bulldozed to their deaths?

how can you expect peace when IDF snipers are killing children on the streets?

how can you... etc

I would never accept peace under a gunpoint, and I think that Palestinians have (at least) the right to defend themselves against a much stronger enemy... even with homemade rockets (they don't have f-16 planes, you know)

and they succeeded to survive against all odds, planes, apaches, tanks, bullets and trillions of help for 60 years...

I salute Palestinians' bravery!!!

You are an imbecile. If the 'palestinians' would stop firing rockets - the conflict would be over tomorrow. But that's not what they want, and it's not what YOU want.

Maybe the reason the Palestinians are still around there is because the Israelis only strike when they are struck first...

Re: Gaza militant groups continue rocket attacks at Israel
What a spin. Israel invades, Gaza Militants fires back w/mortars and grenade launchers. Then it's spun as though they shot their grenade launchers / mortars 500-600 miles at them to start it. : /

Here's the real invaders and aggressors.


"The violence came a day after Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert pledged to "forge a historic path" toward a final accord with the Palestinians in the first formal peace talks in seven years, warning that if Israel tries to maintain control over Palestinian territories, its future as a Jewish state is in jeopardy."

Israel:

Area - comparative:
slightly smaller than New Jersey

Land boundaries:
total: 1,017 km
border countries: Egypt 266 km, Gaza Strip 51 km, Jordan 238 km, Lebanon 79 km, Syria 76 km, West Bank 307 km

Coastline:
273 km

500 miles = 804.672 kilometers

Here.. you need this too, I'll bet.

Palestinian Presidency condemns Gaza offensive as bid to thwart talks.

Spokesman for Palestinian Presidency Tuesday accused Israel of trying to thwart final status talks due to kick off Wednesday by launching offensive against the Gaza Strip.

"The Israeli government's determination to continue the offensives, assassinations and expanding settlements boost the doubts about the Israeli intentions regarding the negotiations," spokesman Nabil Abu Rdainah told reporters.

Israeli troops backed by tanks pushed two km into southern Gaza since this morning, killing four Palestinian militants.

"This is an awful crimes and aggression," Abu Rdainah said, adding that "It is difficult to go on with the negotiation process under the assassinations, deliberate killing, land confiscation and other procedures that don't suit the spirit of the peace process."

Israeli and Palestinian sides agreed at a U.S.-hosted peace conference held last month in Annapolis, Maryland that negotiations over final status issues, namely Jerusalem, borders, settlements and Palestinian refugees, would begin on Dec. 12.

=====

A police operation? Gaza is sovereign territory with self government. An attack was a nice way to describe Israel's actions. I would have been just as accurate to call it an invasion. If you think it is a police action than do you also think that Palestinians in Gaza should have all the rights accorded citizens of Israel? Shouldnt a police action be protecting ordinary people against criminals? Or is Gaza an Israeli prison, a Guantanamo dumping ground, where excess subhumans can be mercilessly ground to dust?

What's happening as I understand it, is that Olmert wants to push Bush's idea of a seperate Palestinian state. At all costs is to avoid a one state solution from gaining international traction (ie "the end of the so called Jewish State"). Palestinians who are negotiating for a two state solution are not representative of the majority (since it would be enshrining the apartheid politic, where Palestinians would be in a perpetual state of division and weakness....

IMO the two state "solution" is a recipe for disaster for the Palestinians (and Israel).
