Palestinian armed groups ended a year-long truce with Israel yesterday in a move which could lead to new violence and derail elections in the West Bank and Gaza already threatened by lawlessness and political infighting.
The so-called "cool down" by militants has been frequently interrupted by rocket attacks launched from Gaza, and Islamic Jihad has continued to carry out suicide bombings on Israeli targets.

Good, now the vermin can die in larger numbers.
Gaza is an open sewer filled with vermin.
A warrior's call to action.

Palestinian armed groups ended a year-long truce with Israel yesterday in a move which....didn't mean a damn thing to anybody.
To them, "truce" means "we'll try to kill you again later".
