Hamas details its own rocket attacks.

“Al Qassam website – Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, fired dozens of mortars and rockets at the Israeli military sites around Gaza Strip in response to the Israeli violations against Gaza people in the past three days.

The Brigades said in a recent statement that its operatives in Gaza have fired 120 rockets and mortar shells at Israeli military sites around Gaza.

Now let’s take a look at what these ‘military sites’ which Hamas admits it attacked actually are. 

‘The third eye’ is a bad translation of Ein HaShlosha, which is a kibbutz in the Eshkol regional council. 

Erez is a kibbutz in the Sha’ar HaNegev regional council. There is a crossing nearby of the same name.   

‘Kissufeem’ is Kissufim – a kibbutz in the Eshkol regional council.

‘Ri’eem’ is Re’im – a kibbutz in the Eshkol regional council.

‘Sofa’ is Sufa – a kibbutz in the Eshkol regional council. There is also a crossing nearby of the same name.

Kfar Aza is a kibbutz in the Sha’ar HaNegev regional council.

Nahal Oz is a kibbutz in the Sha’ar HaNegev regional council.

Abu Salim is Kerem Shalom – a kibbutz in the Eshkol regional council. There is a crossing nearby of the same name.

‘Zikeem’ is Zikim – a kibbutz in the Hof Ashkelon regional council.

There is an army training base situated near the kibbutz – also named Zikim (Bahad 4).

A kibbutz is a civilian agricultural community. Hamas is of course lying when it describes them as ‘military bases’ – perhaps to avoid accusations of the targeting of civilians. As Elder of Ziyon has pointed out in the past, this is apparently Hamas standard practice

It should be noted that throughout the past few days of intense rocket attacks upon Israeli civilian communities, trucks carrying humanitarian aid and supplies continued to pass through the crossings from Israel into the Gaza Strip.
