Islamic Jihad Rocket Killed Hamas Policeman and His Three Children

(Ynet News) Avi Issacharoff - During the latest flare-up between Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Israel, it was PIJ's errant rocket launches, which killed over a dozen Palestinians, that led Hamas to pressure it to agree to a ceasefire. In the first such incident on Saturday night, an Islamic Jihad rocket hit a group of civilians in the Jabalia refugee camp, killing six, including four children. On Sunday, in the same area, another misfired rocket killed five children and teenagers. In the third incident, a rocket hit a Hamas policeman and his three children, killing them in the area of the Bureij refugee camp. From that moment, Hamas' leadership, including those residing abroad, made it clear to PIJ that it must agree to a truce.
