Gaza Mortar Fire Shows More Iranian Involvement

(Jerusalem Post) Anna Ahronheim - The mortars fired at southern Israel on Friday show increased Iranian involvement in Gaza, former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon told Army Radio on Sunday. "There is a rise in Iranian involvement in Gaza in support of Hamas and Islamic Jihad...and to blame Iran was correct." According to Ya'alon, Iran and Hizbullah feel more confident because of their success in Syria and have begun paying more attention to Israel. "Iran is the only one lending us military support," Hamas Politburo deputy chairman Saleh al-Arouri said Saturday, adding, "Our relations with Hizbullah are wonderful and there is a readiness on their part to supply everything we need for a military campaign against Israel."
