How utterly predictable

Attacks by the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, which has rejected a cease-fire with Israel, has forced Israel to conduct a raid on Gaza, during which a terrorist was killed:

Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian militant during a raid in the West Bank and temporarily blocked Gaza’s main road on Thursday, angering Palestinians who accused Israel of undermining U.S. peacemaking.

The killing in the West Bank town of Qalqilya and the almost six-hour road closure, three days after the long-blocked highway was reopened, followed attacks by militants, Israel said.

Israeli troops shot dead 30-year-old Mahmoud Shawar of the al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades during an overnight raid in Qalqilya. A second member of the Brigades was wounded and arrested, Palestinian security sources and the Israeli army said.

“We in the al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades announce we are not complying with the cease-fire as long as the occupation continues raiding our lands and killing our people,” a local leader of the Brigades said through loudspeakers as Shawar was buried.

So the Palestinians continue to attack Israel on a daily basis after the declaration of the so-called “cease-fire”, and the world ignores it. The al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade never agreed to the cease-fire in the first place. And yet it’s Israel that’s accused of “undermining the peace process”.

How utterly predictable.
