This Ongoing War
08 January '11
The terrorists of the Gaza Strip, operating under the Hamas terrorist regime, scored a direct hit today (Saturday). Proudly announcing they had managed to fire off six mortar shells against what they laughably called "a military base", the Islamic Jihad organization took full credit. The reality, as reflected in Israeli reports, is that four mortar shells landed on the grounds of a kibbutz in southern Israel's Sha'ar Hanegev region. Three people were injured, all of them agricultural contract workers from Thailand, according to Ynet, inside their residential hut. (Reuters says two.) One of them has moderate to serious injuries, a second one moderate wounds and a third lightly wounded.
There are reports of a fifth mortar shell landing in an open area in the Eshkol region this evening; fortunately there are no injuries or damage, but it is clear that this not the outcome the jihadists wanted. Experience shows they will keep firing off haphazardly as they tend to do until one of their pot-shots strikes gold.
Another Islamic Jihad "hero" made today's news in the very final stages of his terrorist career.
