The Brave militant heroes of Gaza have sent another of the endless rockets headed towards the citizens of Israel except this time it fell short. It fell short and killed a 8 year old boy and his 6 year old sister. It also injured 5 other children.
"The Associated Press had earlier quoted witnesses as saying the blast was the result of the children playing with a homemade rocket or a mortar shell that they had stumbled upon."
The Press has been incredibly quiet, there's barely a murmur of this event, there's no Arab cries for World condemnation at the UN. The least surprising event has been out of the endless parade of militant groups coming out of Gaza not one o f them has claimed responsibility.
In the place where one rocket fired is usually claimed by a half dozen militant groups, there's a strange silence.
You see killing Jewish Citizens is to be celebrated, but killing ones own is hushed.
The sad thing is instead of mourning the death of these innocents, Gaza will celebrate them as shahids, martyrs who have died for the cause.
The criminals who killed these children, will not be hunted down for the criminals they are. They will simply keep on trying to kill Jewish citizens, possibly children.

Qassam rocket fired at Israel kills two children in Gaza Strip
A Qassam rocket fired by Palestinian militants struck the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday, killing an eight-year-old boy and his six-year-old sister, and injuring five other children.
The rocket, fired at Israel, fell short and hit the children's house in the village of Beit Lahiya. No group claimed responsibility.
Moaiya Hassanain, a Palestinian health official, said the wounded were evacuated to hospital for medical treatment.
The Kamal Adwan hospital identified the dead children as eight-year-old Wesam Abed Allah and his six-year-old sister Hala.
The Associated Press had earlier quoted witnesses as saying the blast was the result of the children playing with a homemade rocket or a mortar shell that they had stumbled upon. It is not uncommon for Qassam rockets fired at Israel to land inside the Gaza Strip.
On Monday, a Qassam rocket hit a preschool in the western Negev, causing damage to surrounding buildings but no injuries.
