    The Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, military wing of the Hamas militant group, blamed Israel, but the Israeli military said it was not involved. A Palestinian source quoted by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz said that the victims appeared to be members of Hamas. The explosion could have been caused by the handling of explosives inside a building, the source added. Tensions in the region are high, with clashes between Palestinians and the Israeli military taking place along the Gaza-Israel border since demonstrations erupted more than a month ago.

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The militant Islamic Jihad group said four of its members were killed Saturday in a "work accident" in the southern Gaza Strip along the border with Israel. The explosion struck a three-wheeled vehicle near one of the five protest camps Palestinians have set up along the volatile Gaza-Israel border in recent weeks. Islamic Jihad said all four were killed "during preparations" without elaborating, implying they were preparing an attack against Israel. The Israeli military said it was unaware of any activity in the area of the blast.

    A mix-up with daylight saving time may have caused a car bomb to blow up in the face of a bumbling bomber in Dublin. The unidentified bomber was seen fleeing from the wreckage of a ruined Volvo SUV on Sunday evening, while “dripping in blood” after the device that was attached to the vehicle went off early. Clocks in Ireland were turned ahead on Sunday night. “It would appear that the bomber got his timings wrong. It could be a case where he didn’t put his watch forward on Sunday [at 1am] and the timer went off too soon,” the...

    Israel and Gaza enter the fifth day of what the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are calling ‘Operation Pillar of Cloud.' As the war wages on it, is it time Israel invaded Gaza, with the goal to kill the terrorist group threatening peace for both Israel and Palestine? Israel engaging in a loaded conflict with Gaza isn’t an unfamiliar enmity, but it has become an excessive, futile matter. Hamas is mad that Israel is a living, breathing state, and Israel wants the two to live together in a permanent, peaceful time. Israel isn’t going anywhere and Hamas has yet to cease...
