Hamas, the major Palestinian terrorist group, says that it is still observing the cease fire, despite its attacks on southern Israel. Hams insists that it still has the right to make retaliatory attacks in response to real or imagined attacks by the Israelis. Hamas decides what it real here, thus making their agreement rather one sided. Continued violence has, in the past five days, left twelve Palestinians and five Israelis dead. The Israelis are responding to over a hundred rockets and mortar shells fired at Israelis, from Gaza, in the past five days.
