Israeli airstrike hits Hamas target

An Israeli airstrike east of Khanunis City in Gaza early Sunday left a 25-year-old man dead and another militant seriously injured, according to medical sources and the military wing of Hamas.

The two belonged to Hamas’ Izzedine al Qassam brigade, which three hours earlier fired mortars into Israel.

The airstrike reportedly occurred after an Israeli incursion into Palestinian territory.

    8 Israeli F15's bombed Sudan nearly a week ago, most of the worlds media including the Israeli media are running the story. However in the US there seems to be a media blackout, why, free press what a joke the Russians have a freer press than the US.

      Right! Did you check recently on what is going on in Russia as reported by Russian "freer" press?
      You can also check RT channel on US TV.

      According to both the Israeli and Sudanese media there still was no shred of evidence shown by the Sudanese authorities to support their accusations against Israel... Further, the "free" press could as well tell us about 80 Israeli F-22 instead of 8 F-15. It would sound way more impressive while remianing no less true.

      Are you talking about the weapon factory that was a smuggling source to Hamas in Gaza? I wonder why Israel would want to attack that? uncontrolled aggresion I guess, Besides the fact that no proof was given, and given that it is fashionable to blame Israel for the weather in the Arab world. It might have well been a work accident. Wouldn't supprise me one bit.

    And here's another angle: dozens of rockets a day were being fired from Ghaza to populated Israeli towns and settlements in the weeks prior to this attack. No word on that in the article...

    The militants killed were reportedly in the process of firing more rockets on Israeli civilians.

    Hi!
    Do you also report on the rockets that the Hamas is firing daily on Israel towns!
    How may rockets would the US for example be willing to see fired from Mexico or Canada targeting American kids???

    HamaSS released video of its terrorists firing rockets at Israel, from a civilian area of Gaza. It is regular tactics “freedom fighters” and their Iranian bosses. Next, in propaganda war will be cry out of “human rights” for collateral damage happen to “innocent civilians”.

    Why there is no discussion about the blockade of Gaza by Israel, 1.5 million Palestinians are subject to this s blockade, in the past Gilad Shalit was the official excuse, now it just cruelty

      As you've explained in your own earlier post Shalit's abduction never was the reason for Israeli blockade of Gaza. Palestinian terrorism (including the rockets) was.

    Israel is way too soft on hamas. The only way to stop these daily rocket attacks is to systematically destroy hamas' infrastucture, logistics and limit the amount of electricity, gas, and fuel into Gaza.

    Dear Israel, really wishing you can hit the AKParty hard, so they can't recover from it.
    Because i'm sick and tired from their actions against my fellow secular Turks (see/check out the news on October 29 2012 Celebration, Day of the Republic in TR) and against your people.
    You have no idea how much you are loved. and regarded. Your Turkish friend.
