The monsters never stop.
And the muslims everywhere are suffering from subversive, sellout puppets. Abbas is no different, this despicable goon is working for them
Palestinians woke up early Thursday on what it seemed to be their regular alarm, the sound of Israeli rockets and raids. And instead of bidding farewell to nine martyrs, now they have to mourn 28, including eight children.
Israeli occupation security forces struck a range of targets in the West Bank and Gaza Strip on Thursday, killing a total of 15 Palestinians, including four children. The deaths come a day after the occupation army martyred 13 Palestinians. Early Thursday evening, an Israel Air Force helicopter attacked a police roadblock near the Gaza City home of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, in which Palestinian officials said one person was martyred and four others wounded.
Four children - all under the age of 16 and three from the same family - were martyred in an IAF strike in Jabalya, a refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip. Another IAF attack in northern Gaza a short while later martyred a Hamas resistance fighter. Earlier, IAF aircraft struck northern Gaza, killing another Hamas member and one other person.
On Thursday morning, three resistance fighters were martyred in an Israeli strike in the Gaza neighborhood of Sajaiya. Two of the men martyred belonged to the Popular Resistance Committees' military wing and the third was a Hamas fighter. Palestinian sources reported that another fighter was wounded in the strike.
In the Gaza City neighborhood of Zeitoun, an IAF strike martyred two Hamas members, including son of senior Hamas lawmaker, Khalil al-Haya. The group said he had commanded a rocket-launching squad in northern Gaza. Al-Haya is one of Hamas' top figures in Gaza, and has escaped assassination attempts, including an IAF strike that killed his brother last year.
Visiting the morgue at Gaza City's Shifa hospital Thursday, Khalil al-Haya said he was proud that his son had lost his life for the Hamas cause, like many of his relatives. "I thank God for this gift, he said. This is the 10th member of my family to receive the honor of martyrdom."
Two other Palestinian resistance fighters were martyred by the occupation army during an operation in the West Bank town of Nablus, local sources reported. One of the martyrs belonged to the Popular Front's armed wing – the Abu Mustafa Brigades, and the other was a member of Fatah's military wing, the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. Six other Palestinians were injured in the attack.
Moreover, overnight Israeli aircraft struck the empty office of Haniyeh and nearby premises of his Interior Ministry, killing a 6-month old baby and wounding more than 30 other people. Earlier on Wednesday, three Palestinian children were killed in an Israeli strike in the northern Gaza Strip. The children were aged 10, 12, and 14. Occupation army also killed nine Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank; five of the martyrs belonged to Hamas military wing.
Hamas retaliated for the Israeli crimes by launching more 50 Qassam rockets in 24 hours into the western Negev town of Sderot and the surrounding communities killing one Israeli settler and wounding several others. Many settlers were treated for shock.
One of the wounded was an officer belonging to Israeli Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter's protection detail. The security officer was at the place for preliminary scouting of the area in preparation for the minister's visit.
ABBAS: ARMED 'RESISTANCE' NOT RULED OUT
On Thursday, PA President Mahmoud Abbas said that he does not rule out returning to the path of armed "resistance" against Israel and took pride in the fact that he had been the first to fire on Israel in 1965. In an interview with the Jordanian daily al-Dustur, Abbas said that he was opposed to an armed struggle against Israel - for the time being. "At this present juncture, I am opposed to the armed struggle because we can't succeed in it, but maybe in the future things will be different," he said.
