Rocket fired by Palestinians in northern Gaza Strip lands near hotel on Ashkelon's beach; no injuries or damage reported in attack. Police bomb squad says rocket might have been a Katyusha, as area is out of Qassam range
The justification of Palestinian terror against Israel has been the "occupation." Of course by no measure is Ashkelon "occupied territory." So what justifies this attack.
Coming so close on the heels of Egypt allowing members of Hamas to cross into Gaza unsearched, one has to ask if this is a Katyusha, did Egypt have a hand in getting in updating Hamas's arsenal. And for that matter did Saudi Arabia? Remember Saudi Arabia arranged for the Hamas sponsored hajj.
Put simply have America's "moderate" Arab allies taken an active role in aiding Hamas against Israel?
