Some of those rockets came from Egypt
So where is the Multinational Force and Observers that is supposed to be keeping the peace in Sinai? Reports indicate that some of the rockets that hit Israel on Friday night came from Sinai
, the territory that Israel turned over to Egypt 30 years ago in return for 'peace.'
"Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night," reports the Jerusalem Post. "The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries."
The Israeli daily Haaretz reports, "Rockets fired from direction of Egypt toward Eshkol Regional Council."
It appears no damage was reported in connection with the rocket fire
from Egypt. Earlier today, the Egyptian prime minister visited Gaza to
express solidarity with the Palestinians there.
This new front comes a day after a rocket landed near Tel Aviv and on
the same day Israel's capital Jerusalem was the target of rocket fire.
Those attacks were courtesy of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
President Morsy needs a stern warning. Two in fact. He obviously won't get a warning from the Obama administration, but he ought to get one from the US Congress and one from Israel saying that two can play this game.
