United Nations “peace process” coordinator Robert Serry underplayed Wednesday morning’s rocket attacks on southern Israel while wagging his finger against any retaliation, which was “proportional” by virtue of two bombing attacks that caused no casualties.
While citing the Kassam rocket attacks on the town of Sderot as “violations of the ceasefire,” Serry added that they “undermine the ‘understanding’ reached between Israel and Gaza on November 21.”
The rockets hit the entrance of Sderot and an open area in the small city, and caused no physical injuries but sent residents into another round of shock.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri ignored the ceasefire violations from the side of Gaza and stated only that the Israeli retaliation broke the truce agreement. “We call on international parties to intervene immediately to end the Israeli escalation and also the violations against the prisoners,” he said in a statement, referring to jailed Palestinian Authority terrorist Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh, who died this week from cancer.
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas Israel for the death by not treating Abu Hamdiyeh properly.
