Palestine: French Blogger Weighs In On Gaza

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Israel, Palestine, Breaking News, Politics, War & Conflict

French blogger Jeremie Berrebi [1], writing from Israel, posted yesterday a long blog post “Gaza/Israel : Why it is starting again” on the Gaza attacks seen from Israel and his analysis of the reasons behind the Israeli air strikes:

Depuis [la rupture de la trêve], ce sont plusieurs centaines de missiles qui sont tombés sur des villes israéliennes (on parle ici de cibles civiles) au cours des derniers jours. Des missiles plus sophistiqués qu'il y a 6 mois ont même été lancées sur des villes qu'ils n'avaient pas la possibilité de toucher avant. Oui, vous avez bien lu….des centaines de roquettes Qassam ont été tirées sur de VRAIES VILLES qui ne font même pas partie des territoires soi disant “disputés” par les Palestiniens modérés.

Since the truce ended, several hundred missiles have fallen on Israeli towns [we are talking about civilians here] during the past days. Those missiles are much more sophisticated than six month ago, and have been aimed at town that were not within their reach before. Yes, you are reading that hundreds of Qassam missiles have been fired at REAL TOWNS, that are not even located on the so called “disputed territories” by moderate Palestinians.
