GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Israeli warplanes fired three missiles into the presidential compound of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday, wounding two people and leaving deep craters in the ground. Abbas was not there at the time.

The Israeli airstrike came in response to homemade Palestinian rocket attacks on southern
Israel, though it was not immediately clear why Abbas' compound was targeted. Abbas has been a strong critic of the rocket fire and has urged the new Hamas Cabinet to accept peacemaking with Israel.

The missiles landed at Ansar 2, a largely abandoned base of the presidential guard and about 100 yards from Abbas' office. The Palestinian leader was at his main office in the
West Bank.


This doesn't sound good. How on earth is anything ever going to get better with all this tit-for-tat fighting? Sometimes I just wish you could grab countrys by the scruff of their necks and bang their bloody heads together
