Rockets kill 1 in Israel; Hamas military wing ends truce

One person was killed and at least 12 were injured Saturday when more than two dozen rockets fired by Gaza militants slammed into Israeli cites.

It's the latest in the ongoing tit-for-tat violence between Israel and militants over the past three days.

The fatality occurred in Beer Sheva, according to Eli Bin, an emergency official in the region. Four people were seriously injured and two suffered moderate wounds when rockets struck a house and car. An unknown number of trauma injuries were being transported to the hospital, Bin said.

    According to UN figures Palestinians killed by israeli forces since Sept.29,2000 number 6'430. Israelis killed by Palestinian militants number 1'084. Palestinian children killed number 1'452 and Israeli children 124.

    Palestinian mostly use home made unguided rockets. The IDF of course is backed by War planes, gun ships & tanks.

    This violence would continue because we Americans chose to ignore the fact that a permanent resolution of this conflict is in the best interests of USA. The two state solution backed by President Obama , the International Community, peace loving Jews in Israel & elsewhere and Palestinians is always sabotaged by the right wing apartheid regime in Israel in tandem with our politicians holding dual loyalty.

      You call them Palestinians they are HAMAS. They fire rockets into the private sectors SO IT'S Time for Israel to do the same thing They fired 24 Israel should just fire 240 and let land anywhere THEN MAYBE THEY WOULD KICK HAMAS OUT and end the terriorism.

      I agree Jack. There is a difference between Hamas and the legitimate Palestinian authority. Everyone should point out that the attacks almost exclusively come from Gaza. Anything controlled by the Palestinian government is relatively peaceful. That land was Palestine before it was Israel, but both peoples were there since before Christianity came along. I'd like to arm the legitimate Palestinians and have them go into Gaza themselves to clean house, but I suspect that will never happen. Maybe UN forces that are only muslim could do it to negate any talk of Israeli aggression.

    It is always sad to hear of these things. It is even sadder that nobody pays attention to how many are killed by Israel's secret service, the mossad. The mossad are busy in Libya. Are they fighting for NATO, or for Gadhaffi? Really, just whose side is Israel on in Libya. Do you know?

    Sorry. Talking about mossad or Israeli atroticies even when they kill Americans is taboo here. One has to tread carefully.
