Hamas political bureau terrorist chief Khaled Mashaal spoke on Monday with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu about Israel’s air strikes on Gaza’s rocket launchers.

The two men exchanged greetings for a blessed Ramadan — the Islamic holiday in which Muslims fast each day for an entire month — and then Mashaal asked Davutoglu to find a way to block Israel from attacking Gaza terrorists.

The request came on the same morning that Gaza terrorists had launched a barrage of 15 rockets at southern Israel.

Two homes were damaged and at least two local residents were treated for shock on site. Others suffered from anxiety and trauma after a 24-hour period of having to run for their shelters and safe rooms on an average of every 90 minutes due to constant rocket attacks.

All this, barely 48 hours after the Israeli city of Sderot had gone up in flames from a missile attack that struck a paint factory. The chemicals in the factory had exploded upon impact from a Qassam rocket fired by Gaza terrorists. Four residents were wounded and the factory was burned to the ground.

Israel has retaliated with surgical air strikes. Over the weekend a dozen terrorist targets were hit, including two Al Qaeda-linked members of the Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (ISIL). Both terrorists were killed.

  1. Oh, I see-if Turkey had thousands of rockets fired into their cities, I guess they would ask someone for help or go in there and wreck the joint from where the missiles came.Israel no longer gives a sh-t what Turkey and Erdogan thinks or wants.

  2. Any other country would just declare war on these things..Israel gives them money, electricity, heal their sick, gives them water..I just dont get it..they hold up their three little fingers on kidnapping and throw rockets all day..talking about biting the hand that feeds you.!!!!!
