Although the continual bombing from Gaza has eased up a bit, the rocket fire from Gaza continues into the southern parts of Israel.
Yesterday two kassam rockets were fired, and landed in open areas in the western Negev. A terrorist, an Islamic Jihad operative was killed when his car blew up in Gaza. The Arabs claim it was caused by an Israeli Airforce Strike but the IAF did not comment.
The IDF and Shin Bet have arrested a number of terror cells over the past few months. Those arrested included a would be suicide bomber and many who have spent time in Israeli jails for terrorist charges and were released in the past. This is why, as difficult as it may be, it is impossible to release prisoners in exchange for Gilad Shalit.
