Thirteen Israeli air strikes hit Gaza Strip
BBC ^ | Apr 2, 2010 | Unknown

Posted on 04/01/2010 5:36:29 PM PDT by decimon

Israeli warplanes have carried out at least 13 air strikes on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, Palestinian sources have told the BBC.

Four of the strikes took place near the town of Khan Younis, where two Israeli soldiers were killed in clashes with Palestinian fighters last week.

The Israeli strikes are the most serious for more than a year, says the BBC's Jon Donnison from Jerusalem.

Three children were reported slightly injured by flying debris.

The director of ambulance and emergency in the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Dr Muawiya Hassanein, said an infant was among the injured.

Witnesses and Hamas officials said the Israeli raids targeted metal workshops , farms, a milk factory and small sites belonging to the military wing of Hamas.

'Retaliation'

Palestinian news agencies reported that Israeli aircraft dropped leaflets over parts of Gaza on Thursday warning residents of retaliation for last Friday's killings of the soldiers in Khan Younis.

The BBC never reports on Hamas terrorists getting their comeuppance, but if a "child" gets even a small scratch they're all over it.

bama won’t be happy ... too bad.

bama doesn’t realize that now that he’s treating Israel like an enemy he can’t have any mitigating influence on what she does to defend herself.

Perhaps Hamas lied? You think? In the first place, if you have never been there, you must know that that Palestinians produce NOTHING! If you go into the arab markets, you will see only Israeli products and antiquities (stolen no doubt.)

They managed to go it alone during the war of independence. I'm betting they can do it again. Google the Jewish Virtual Library to see their story.

Did the BBC report on the Palistians dancing in the streets in celebration after 9/11 when many civilians, women and children were killed? I saw it, and I have no remorse to rejoice in, "turn about is fair play". At least, Israel dropped leaflets to warn them of coming actions.

Does Gaza even have a dairy industry or even dairy cows?

Same milk factory. Just moved it from Sudan to Gaza. Hope they didn’t manufacturer Milky Way bars. Oh the horror of it.

Probably just made Kassam rockets to kill Israelis. No big deal, MSM. Move on to another smear against Israel.

The Israelis bombed the shit out of the milk factory because rockets were being made there.

Its not their fault that the Milk Factory let Hamas make rockets there.

There's a milk factory on every street corner. Sometimes they just call them Israel Bomb Magnets.

You are correct. If they can be used to further their aims, they are useful, otherwise they are useless.

We have American soldiers on he ground there, training the Palestinian "police" and supplying them small arms.

Obama put them there. If Usrae hits our men,WHO IMHO should not even be there, Obama will try to create a situation where our military will blockade Israel.Thats a step away from war.

Obama is a traitor. He has US Army boots on the ground in the Gaza strip as victims.

Thank you.

The Israel Defense Forces said in a statement that two weapons factories were hit, one in northern Gaza and the other in central Gaza, as were two weapons depots in southern Gaza.

Israel is in the process of escalation.

Eventually they'll provoke Iran and it's proxies to the point that Iran will have to retaliate overtly.

This will be the Israeli trigger to take out those damn nukes.

Obama notwithstanding. He won't get a vote on this one.

Yep...Damascus & Tehran should have been hit right off the bat; & if any other Muslim country made any threats, not only should their capital have been hit, the Israelis should have warned that Mecca would have been next!
