Israel airstrike in Gaza kills 3, sources say

An Israeli airstrike in the Gaza town of Beit Lahiya killed three Hamas supporters on Tuesday, Palestinian sources told CNN.

The people killed were militants from the Salah ad Din brigades who were suspected of trying to shoot Qassam rockets into Israel, the sources said.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed it launched an airstrike that generated secondary explosions, suggesting that ammunition or explosives were in that area.

The strike comes after two Qassam rockets launched from Gaza reached the Ashkelon area Tuesday, where they landed near a regional council building. No one was hurt, the IDF said.

    These hostilities were initiated by the Jews 3,000 years ago when they returned from Egypt and tried to use genocide to eradict the Canaanites. Read Genesis 21 and Joshua 12. When will Israel honor the treaties in Genesis 21 and 26 and quit casting the Palestinians as villians? Apparently the world is willing to overlook genocide if 'God' said to do it....

      Really Joe? Really? Anti-Semitic much? They are launching rockets into Israel and yet the Israeli's (who by the way are not all Jews) get blamed for fighting back. Your ignorance makes me laugh.

      Dayna I think you should read something other than CNN lol! Do you not see the numbers, facts, history? Fact is there have been 13 deaths in Isreal at the hands of "hamas" and there have been THOUSANDS of deaths for the Palistinian people, mainly women and children. Huh, what were you saying again about self defense?

      In fact Hamas was started for the people of West Bank and Gaza for that very reason. Their children were being killed at the hands of Isreali soldiers! The men were being sniped off and just left in te streets! They had no food because as you know the west bank and gaza are freakin internment camps!! Not too much in and we know that by the Turkish ship (flotilla) that was stormed and the AID workers on that ship were MURDERED by the Isreali army! Its control, just like the media is doing to your little mind!

      Yeah except those called Palestinians today aren't those people the the Jews fought with those thousands of years ago. These Palestinians moved into the region when Muslims took it over 1000-1500 years ago much later then the Jews being there.

      Tia lets wait until after the investigation before we start claiming murder. As for Gaza being an internment camp you can thank Egypt for that since they are the ones who set it up that way.

    Please dont give me this crap about poor Isreal. Too many Palistinian Children have been sniped off by the Isreali Army. One woman lost all of her children, 4 to be exact when her four children, none older than 9 were shot while picking blackberries! Thsi happens all the time there, give me a break! Isreal report 13 deaths in the last couple of years vs the thousands of Palistinians killed in Gaza and were not even talking about the west bank! The numbers speak for themselves!!!!!!!!!!!! Dumb Uneducated Idle Minds! Read something!
