Finally! IDF hits Hamas headquarters in Gaza

I've been holding off on posting what's been going on in Gaza because it's been a wild day and I was going to put everything in one post around the time that the US starts going to work. But this is too good to wait.

The IDF, which has been shooting at Kassam launch sites empty fields all morning long in response to Kassam fire on Sderot (nine more so far today) finally shot a missile at a Hamas headquarters building in Rafah along the Egyptian border. Seven terrorists were killed.
The army said the building situated in Rafah along the border with Egypt was used by Hamas to plan terror attacks.

The attack Wednesday is the first of its kind since the truce between Israel and the Palestinians was declared in November 2006. Up until now, the army has refrained from attacking command posts and only operated against Qassam cells. IDF officials said that the strike was the result of consultations with the defense minister Wednesday.

According to the Palestinians, the strike would torpedo understandings reached between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas' political chief Khaled Mashaal regarding a ceasefire between the two organizations.
Good. Let them go kill each other.

I'm not overwhelmed by this response. Much more can be done short of invading Gaza.

Michael and Ram,

I agree with both of you. I was kind of hoping they would target Haniyeh.
