Note al-Reuters use of the word militant in the headline. They are not militants. They are TROOPS, SOLDIERS. Gaza is not "occupied territory." Gaza is theirs. They have an elected government (of terrorists) now. It's not Gaza militants, its Palestinians troops.
Palestinian troops allegedly fire a chemical tipped missile into Israel and still the Israelis conduct the most civilized operation the world has ever known.
The Israelis have taken out the power grid leaving two thirds of the Palestinians and their elected terror government in the dark. They knocked out their water. The Israelis have taken out three bridges, arrested the Hamas labor (labor? what labor?) cabinet minister, and six Hamas lawyers (what law school?), and rounded up Hamas senior leadership.
The Israelis have killed no one. Not one savage dead.
Their self control is frightening -- and frankly beyond my comprehension. The Palis are kidnapping Jews and killing them -
GAZA (Reuters) - A spokesman for gunmen in the Gaza Strip said they had fired a rocket tipped with a chemical warhead at Israel early on Thursday.
The Israeli army had no immediate comment on the claim by the spokesman from the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an armed wing of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement.
The group had recently claimed to possess about 20 biological warheads for the makeshift rockets commonly fired from Gaza at Israeli towns. This was the first time the group had claimed firing such a rocket.
"The al-Aqsa Brigades have fired one rocket with a chemical warhead" at southern Israel, Abu Qusai, a spokesman for the group, said in Gaza.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said the army had not detected that any such rocket was fired, nor was there any report of such a weapon hitting Israel.
