Hamas closes in on Intel plant

Written by Nick Farell

Kiryat Gat now a target
Insurgents working for Hamas have fired rockets on Kiryat Gat, home to a huge Intel factory.

No one was injured, and the Israeli defence force retaliated with an aerial strike. One of the missiles exploded at a cattle barn outside of the city.

Kiryat Gat is halfway between Be’er Sheva, the capital of the Negev, and Rehovot, the southern edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv. Hamas left Kiryat Gat alone since Israel’s counterterrorist Operation Cast Lead campaign two and a half years ago.

Another rocket exploded between Ashkelon and Kiryat Gat. Hamas has increased the number of its rocket attacks in the past month, attacking Israel with four times the number of missiles than it did in June.

However managing to hit a high profile target like the huge Intel plant might get the insurgents some attention. Fortunately they have not sorted out that targeting problem yet.

Kiryat Gat was originally a Palestinian village that razed after the local inhabitants were expelled (or ethnically cleansed).

Quoting Singularity:
ethnically cleansed


come on. they were most likely kicked out in 1948 because they joined the neighboring arab countries when they attached israel in the war for independence immediately after the UN partition plan created israel. that was a long bloody war. it's more than fair to kick people out that attacked you in war, rather than inviting them to be part of your country. that's the likely scenario, although there were many people unfairly uprooted after and during that war. but that's war!

anyways, here's an idea. how about hamas and the palistineans create their own tech industry, rather than trying to destroy israel's. and don't tell me israel wouldn't let them, that's a pathetic excuse and you know it.

kinda politically biased article, Go and see the truth for yourself before putting your own opinion that is largely influenced by a biased media in the west.

Israel killed tens of thousands of not just Palestinians but also Egyptians, Syrian and Lebanese over the past 60 years of it's cruel history by using weapons that are even illegal to use.

These rockets hasn't even injured anyone, yet in the last war on Gaza hundreds were burned by phosphorus most of them were children, and two years before that in Lebanon and so on. They have right to defend their own occupied land!

Israel is a fascist country.

Kind of bizarre that they do the exact same thing to Palestinians that the Nazis have done to them 70 years ago. Haven't they learnt from history?

They've learned to retaliate. What is this "exact same thing" you speak of? Constructing death camps? Stopping people from leaving the country? Gassing them? Incinerating them? Extracting their gold fillings? Stealing all their wealth? Using their hair to stuff pillows and skin to bind books or use as lampshade covers? Must have missed that bit on Al Jezeera. You'd think Jews would find Mein Kampf a good read were that the case. As it stands the book is quite popular in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Sadly you don't know about the history of that war.
in that war they made a battle field of theses villages and all these people do
was going some where that were no war then
when the war ended and they wanted to go back to their home they were not allowed to do so

by the way if you read the article you'll see this happened after the peace not during the war .

Happily, I do know the history of the place, and being a former soldier myself, I can tell you with every bit of confidence there has never been ethnic cleansing in Israel.
We are the only, ONLY real democracy here in the region.
Come on over, scream your ranting at anyone, no one would care. Care to do the same in Syria?
Anywho, my teammate at work (programmer) is muslim arab, my former boss (Company tech director) was muslim arab, and frankly, they are living the best life than in any other country.
You know, just like nazi germany.
