Arab terrorists attacked southern Israel with a Kassam rocket early
Tuesday and attacked Jews in the Hevron area with two firebombs
overnight as “Nakba Day” began. No one was injured.
The rocket, fired from northern Gaza, exploded in an open area near
Sderot, and the firebombs were hurled at IDF soldiers stationed at
the village of El-Aroub, located less than one mile south of the Gush
Etzion junction on Highway 60 leading to Kiryat Arba-Hevron.
The attacks coincided with the beginning of what Arabs call Nakba
Day, or the day of catastrophe, referring to the English date of May
15 when the State of Israel was re-established with a declaration of
independence in 1948.
Security services are expecting the worst and hoping for the best on
Tuesday. Along the northern border, the military said it will not
allow a repeat of last year’s Syrian infiltration into the Golan
Soldiers also have been deployed along the Egyptian and Lebanese
borders to prevent disturbances.
The government may have prevented some violence on Tuesday by signing
an agreement with Palestinian Authority prisoners to end their hunger
strike, which has been gaining international sympathy.
The agreement was seen by Israel as another concession to PA Chairman
Mahmoud Abbas, who has demanded that Israel release all terrorists
and security prisoners. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 05/15/12)
