Shin Bet Warning Families of Palestinian Terrorists Ahead of Airstrikes

[Ha'aretz] Avi Issacharoff and Yuval Azoulay - Shin Bet security service agents have begun telephoning Palestinian terrorists and warning them to leave their houses, so that they and their families will not be hurt when Israel bombs them, Palestinian sources said Tuesday. The houses are targeted because Israel believes they are being used to store or manufacture weapons, including Kassam rockets and rocket-propelled grenades. The Israel Defense Forces bombed two such houses on Tuesday that served as weapons factories, one belonging to an Islamic Jihad operative in Gaza City and one belonging to a Hamas operative in Rafah. The IDF has also interrupted local radio broadcasts in several parts of Gaza in recent days, including some by Hamas' Radio Al-Aqsa, overriding the scheduled programing with warnings about planned attacks on houses that serve as arms caches.
