Hamas continues to fire rockets during Egyptian PM's visitHamas continues to fire.
Ofir Gendelman, a spokesman for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wrote on his Twitter account that, "Hamas does not respect the Egyptian PM's visit to Gaza and violates the temporary cease fire that Israel agreed to during the visit."All of which shows that Haniyeh believes - probably correctly - that the IAF will not go after him in Kandil's presence. I'm sure they're in Haniyeh's bunker in Shifa and that Kandil will leave alone.
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who has been in hiding since the targeted killing of Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari on Wednesday, publicly welcomed Kandil on Friday and accompanied him on a visit to a hospital in Gaza.
Meanwhile, the pan-Arabic daily al-Hayat reports that Egypt warned Hamas not to escalate tensions with Israel.
Citing the pan-Arab paper, Israel Radio quoted an Egyptian source as saying that while Israel was not obligated to a cease-fire, Cairo had not expected such a harsh response.Yes. For too long, our government has been cowering in fear of what the 'international community' would say. This is long overdue.
"We were shocked when Israel assassinated Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabari," the unnammed source told al-Hayat.
