Gaza militants fire rockets toward Israel

Sept. 30, 2008 5:05 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 30, 2008 5:05 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Militants in Gaza fired homemade projectiles on Monday in what Israeli media labeled "a new violation of the truce" between Israel and Hamas.

The projectiles, however, did not land in Israeli territory and in fact landed near the border area between Egypt and Gaza.

A leading Hamas official, Mahmoud Al-Zahar, condemned the action. He told a Saudi Arabian newspaper on Monday that his party would take action against any group or individual that threatened the ceasefire.

Hamas will "move against any armed group that attempts to violate the ceasefire with Israel," he was quoted as saying.

"Any Palestinian group who deviates from the national consensus and harms the interests of the Palestinian people can no longer be considered a part of the resistance, but rather as someone who seeks to harm it," Al-Zahar concluded.

A Hamas statement about the incident noted that the movement had in the past arrested gunmen targeting the Karni crossing between Gaza and Israel in the south of the Strip.

Israel and Hamas agreed to a temporary, 6 month, ceasefire on 19 June, 2008.
