News of the Israeli-Palestinian Confrontation June 17-24, 2008

Issued on: 25/06/2008 Type: Article

On June 24 at 4 p.m. the Palestinian Islamic Jihad fired three rockets at Sderot, violating the agreement for a lull in the fighting. The event was the lull arrangement’s first test case, and illustrated the need for Hamas to enforce it on the other Palestinian terrorist organizations operating in the Gaza Strip. In Judea and Samaria, which are not included in the arrangement, terrorist attacks and Israeli security forces’ counterterrorist activities continue. Notable this week was the shooting attack northwest of Ramallah, in which three hikers were wounded.
