A total of 20 rockets and 18 mortars were launched from the signing of the ceasefire until the beginning of November. This represented a 98% reduction in rocket fire four and a half month period prior to the signing of the ceasefire during which over 1,800 rockets were fired from Gaza.[2] On November 4, the Israeli military attacked a cross-border tunnel on the Gaza side, killing two Hamas gunman.

At 02:33 I submited a summary of all rocket and mortar .......

.


.................. attacks perpetrated on Israeli civilians by the terrorists from Hamas.

As a result of these attacks Israel launched a war against Hamas on the last days of Dec. 2008.

On the last weeks, Hamas is escalating its attacks again.
Our defense journalists (usually quoting unofficially what they "hear" from the military leadership) understand that what the Hamas is doing is "testing" to what extent Israel is ready to respond and fight back..........

The UN report did condemn Hamas too but mostly Israel. Hamas may keep up rocket attacks but Israel is just as guilty in keeping a blockade on the Gaza strip. It's pretty amazing really, both sides say the UN report is biassed against them. Why can't both Israel and Hamas grow up and accept responsibility for their actions? You could say they are both as guilty as each other and no one on either side would accept it.
