May 4 (UPI) -- The leader of Hamas, a militant Palestinian organization, says his forces have stopped firing rockets into Israel, at least for the time being.

This could be a good sign. Perhaps, both sides will soon settle their differences and all the fighting will end. It's not likely but it sounds nice anyway. This is probably just a pause that will soon be over and we'll end up sending troops, lather, rinse, repeat. At least for the time being, nobody is bombing anyone else in that particular region.

Meanwhile, in the real world, the rockets continue to fall:

Yeah not sure what's happened there. Annoyingly it's dropped off the front page of JPost, but I'll keep digging around.

The gist of it was, more rockets landed in southern Israel yesterday which Hamas claimed responsibility for. No-one hurt thankfully.

IAF warplanes bombed three tunnels underneath the Philadelphi Corridor on Wednesday evening.

Palestinians reported that four people were wounded in the air strike on the Gaza-Egypt border.

The air raid came shortly after Palestinians fired a Kassam rocket at a coastal area south of Ashkelon. Nobody was wounded in the attack, and no damage was reported.

Earlier, Hamas claimed responsibility for firing three mortar shells at the Sha'ar Hanegev region.

A total of six mortar shells were fired at southern Israel throughout the day.

The army said Wednesday that approximately 670 Kassam rockets, mortar shells and Grad missiles had been fired at Israel since the beginning of 2009.

Yeah, i figured it wouldn't last too long. Maybe someday these people will figure out that there is more to life than killing people you don't like. Such as capitalizing on them.
