Escalation in Gaza (LGF)

Israellycool has been liveblogging the escalation in Palestinian rocket attacks from Gaza that has prompted increasing levels of retaliation from Israel. Today the IAF took out the Hamas Interior Ministry building: Israel flattens Hamas ministry in Gaza Strip.

GAZA (Reuters) - Israel bombed the Hamas-run Interior Ministry in Gaza and closed border crossings with the strip on Friday, sharply escalating what it called a campaign to halt Palestinian rocket attacks.

The four-story ministry complex in Gaza City was empty at the time but one woman was killed and at least 30 others nearby were wounded in the air strike, medical officials said.

“It felt like an earthquake,” said Umm Fahmi, a woman who lives across from the blast site.

“My house did not only shake, it jumped from its foundations and back down.How could they drop such a bomb in a residential area on top of people’s heads?” she said, peering through the dust at the concrete and steel remains of the security complex.

I’ll take a crack at answering that one! Perhaps it has something to do with the constant barrages of rockets coming from your neighborhoods into Israel, and the non-stop genocidal hatred and incitement?

Ya think?
