On Thursday morning, the IDF attacked a terrorist team riding a motorcycle that had shot mortar shells at an Israeli patrol in the southern Gaza Strip.
Palestinian sources reported three casualties–the two terrorists and a child who was injured from an exploding window.
Back in 2005, many warned that the plan to unilaterally move the Jewish settlements of Gaza and the IDF presence would be disastrous to Israeli security; not only would prevention of Qassam rockets and other attacks from Gaza become nearly impossible after the withdrawal, but implementation of the plan would be an important moral victory for Hamas and other organizations, and would encourage them to continue executing terrorist attacks against Israel.
Now they want to do the same in Judea and Samaria.
