Hamas weapons maker killed in Israeli attack


A senior Hamas member was killed during Israeli airstrikes in Gaza, Hamas security forces said Saturday.

An airstrike in central Gaza killed Saed Al Bitran, who was responsible for manufacturing weapons, the Hamas forces said.

The Israel Defense Forces said the attack on a weapons-manufacturing site in central Gaza was part of a series of strikes starting late Friday in response to a rocket assault on Ashkelon earlier in the day.

The strikes also targeted two other locations in Gaza: a Hamas "terror-activity site" in the north and a weapons-smuggling tunnel in Rafah, Israeli forces said.


The coastal Israeli city of Ashkelon was hit by a rocket fired by Palestinian militants in Gaza early Friday, causing minor damage but no injuries, an Israel Defense Forces spokeswoman said.

Ashkelon, with a population of approximately 125,000 residents, is about 6 miles (10 kilometers) from the Israel-Gaza border and has been the target of many rockets originating from Gaza -- some wounding residents.

The violence occurred after a glimmer of progress in the Mideast peace process on Thursday. That's when the Arab League gave the Palestinian Authority the green light for direct talks with Israel.

That probably explains why Hamas permitted the attack. the last thing it wants is an agreement with the Israelis. When President Bush sent envoys to promote peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians they were always greeted with exploding Palestinians young people hoping to kill Israelis.

Why Hamas and Gaza have gotten so much sympathy lately is a mystery to me. It is still an area controlled by a death cult. It is an intolerant apartheid society that wanted all Israelis removed from Gaza. In fact, they want all Israelis removed from Israel.


  1. I don't understand how anyone can sympathize with Hamas. Or even Gazans for that matter since they built a shopping mall.

    Cool post.
