The claim that rocket fire from Palestinians has lessened since the criminal Cast Lead assault, is pure bunkum. It was already next to nothing and anyway, those rockets kill fewer Israelis in a year than Peanut butter or Bee stings. Anyone would think it was 1500 Israeli civilians killed in a brutal armed aggression and not only about 6. I am also sick of you animals pretending that you lost 14 in cast Lead. I think the half of those you killed yourselves with your own "friendly" fire, are not the fault of the Palestinians. Despite shooting incidents, including ones resulting in Palestinians getting injured, Hamas still held to the cease-fire from the time it went into effect on June 19 until Israel effectively ended the truce on November 4 by launching an airstrike into Gaza that killed five and injured several others. Israel?s violation of the cease-fire predictably resulted in retaliation from militants in Gaza who fired rockets into Israel in response. The increased barrage of rocket fire at the end of December is being used as justification for the continued Israeli bombardment, but is a direct response to the Israeli attacks.
