Hamas fires dozens of mortars at Israel - FoxNews.com
I saw this too and thought about the timing. Very crazy stuff.
GAZA, (PIC)-- Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, warned the Israeli occupation state of going too far in escalating its military attacks against the Palestinian people in the besieged Gaza Strip, asserting that Saturdays mortar attack was a message for Israeli troops.
The spokesman affirmed that the firing of mortar shells on Israeli military posts in border areas east of Gaza was in retaliation to deadly attacks waged during the past days on Gaza.
Al-Qassam Brigades had fired 33 mortar shells on Israeli military posts on Saturday morning. Consequently, two Israeli soldiers were injured during the retaliatory attack, according to the Hebrew radio.

Hamas's military said it has targeted military positions along the Israeli border of the Gaza Strip. Hamas said it fired at least 33 mortar shells toward four Israeli military bases on March 19.
"The mortars directly targeted the Israeli military bases," Hamas said.
The Israel Army has acknowledged the Hamas attacks, and sources said two civilians were injured and property was destroyed. The Israeli bases at Eshkol, Nahal Oz and Sufa were said to have been targeted.
Hamas was said to have fired a range of mortars, including 60mm and 120mm shells. Hamas said the shelling was in retaliation for what it termed "continued Israeli air strikes and violations against the Gaza Strip."

Are you aware that Israel has killed at least 10 times as many Palestinian children as Palestinians have Israeli children?
Can we take this opportunity to bomb the hell out of Palestine?
A picture of a yellow flag bearing the letters "B.S." must be your only answer to everything. Good show. Is it tough being a genius??
A good American would want to bomb the hell out of Israel, but from your avatar, I see why you posted that way.
