We Can't Stop the Kassams

A Kassam rocket fired from Gaza slammed into a mattress factory in Kibbutz Zikim this morning. One person was taken to the hospital to be treated for shock. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility.

YNet reports that Israel's response to the Kassam attacks has been ineffective. In fact, since the IDF started attacking the Kassams by land, sea and air last week, there has been a 10% increase in Kassam fire. The IDF claimed that the wintry conditions that we have had in Israel this week disrupted its operation against Qassam cells, but vowed to keep up the pressure. The al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, which has been responsible for the most Qassam attacks, remains undeterred.

The number of Kassam attacks has increased exponentially since Israel expelled all the Jews from Gaza in August and withdrew all of the IDF troops that had been stationed there.
