"Thursday morning’s airstrikes came as Israeli forces continued near-daily incursions into the Gaza Strip" "Israel" must have updated weapons to demonstrate for their weapons shows.
"These strikes are a direct response to Hamas and the aggression against Israeli civilians originating from the Gaza Strip,” military spokesman Lieutenant-Coloner Peter Lerner said in a statement cited by Reuters. "The reality that Hamas' territory is used as a staging ground to attack Israel is unacceptable and intolerable and will bear consequences." 'Nuf said?BETHLEHEM (Ma’an): Israeli warplanes attacked multiple targets in the Gaza Strip early Thursday morning, witnesses and Palestinian security sources said.
Airstrikes targeted three training bases of the Izzadine al-Qassam brigades, the military wing of Hamas, in Gaza City and a fourth in the southern city of Khan Younis. (No, they targeted the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza and the southern cities of Rafah and Khan Younis, as well as Beit Lahia in the north)
No injuries or casualties were reported. Just a friendly knock on the door. We're heeeer.
An Israeli military statement spoke only of three hits in total and did not give their location or identify the targets.Why not?
The airstrikes came after the Israeli army confirmed two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip late Wednesday night.
“Yesterday, June 3, 2015, two rockets were launched at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip,” it said adding that they fell on open ground near the southern city of
A militant Salafi organization, identified in a statement posted on twitter as Sheikh Omar Hadid Brigade, claimed responsibility for the rocket fire saying it was in response to the “killing of an IS fighter in Gaza a day ago by Hamas militants.” Oh that's makes perfect sense, shoot rockets at illegal settlements and start a war on Gaza to kill the women and children. Baloney.
Hamas security forces reportedly shot dead a Salafist leader in Gaza City Tuesday during a confrontation.

“We declare our responsibility for the bombing of the occupied city of Ashdod Known to Palestinians as Isdud with a ‘Grad’ missile at exactly nine o’clock in the evening on Tuesday. Thanks to Allah Almighty alone missile hit its target; the Jewish enemy confessed to a number of injuries as a result of terror.” Indeed, make sure to give credit to Allah you Zionists retards!
The incident came as Hamas stepped up measures against militants belonging to “Islamic extremist groups,” some of whom self-identify as Salafists.
Little is known about the Sheikh Omar Hadid Brigade, the group’s claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s rocket attacks, or potential influence inside the Gaza Strip .(A Hamas official told AP that the rocket had been launched by unknown militants. That means Israeli agents.)
Israel has a general policy of holding Hamas responsible for every rocket attack from the territory under its control, regardless of which group actually launched it.
Israeli public radio alleged that Tuesday’s rocket fire was related to current infighting between the Gaza Strip’s Hamas rulers and its extremist opponents.
If they are part of the resistance they would NOT keep referring to the Zionist enemy as "Jews" as Sheikh Omar Hadid does in his "statement" after launching the rockets: "we stress that we are involved in our path and our jihad against the enemies of God, the Jews, will not prevent us and them was the object of God's permission." That is blasphemous in Islam and a dead giveaway. It's the Zionists themselves that claim the Muslims hate Jews. Resistance refers to the Zionist Enemy not God's enemy the Jews. He also mentions in passing that the Hamas arms come by Iran. Why would Iran even be mentioned? Everything the Zionist regime needs to justify an attack on Gaza. How convenient.
Since the 50-day war between Israel and Hamas last summer there have reportedly been growing signs of internal unrest between Hamas security forces and extremist splinter groups.
Meanwhile, UNWRA and rights groups have warned that continuing restrictions by Israel are hampering the ability for Gaza’s 1.8 million residents to rebuild and recover from last summer’s war- the third war in six years- and is resulting in growing unrest.
Thursday morning’s airstrikes came as Israeli forces continued near-daily incursions into the Gaza Strip, shooting and injuring one east of Khan Younis and detaining four fishermen off the coast of Gaza City the day prior.
