Hamas Latest Tactic
Having already claimed that Qassams fired at Sderot were the actions of “collaborators with Israel”, Hamas are now trying a different approach. Namely the What Qassams? approach.
Islamic Hamas movement said in a statement that Sunday’s rocket attack from Gaza at southern Israel “is an Israeli untrue claim to justify closing Gaza border crossing points.”
The Hamas statement came after Israel Radio’s Arabic service reported that unknown Gaza militants fired a homemade rocket from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip at southern Israel, causing no damages or injuries. No one claimed responsibility for the rocket attack.
The radio quoted Israeli army officials as saying that Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, is fully responsible for Sunday’s rocket attack on southern Israel and might face adverse consequences.
“Announcing from time to time that rockets are still fired from Gaza at Israel, is just an untrue claim to justify keeping Gaza Strip border crossing points with Israel closed,” Hamas said in the statement sent to reporters.
