Uh oh, things are heating up in Gaza again

It amazes me that anyone thought that just by removing the settlements, suddenly Gaza would calm down. My suspicion is Sharon manipulated the situation to show that Palestinians are unable to live peacefully and thus make the forceful case for Israeli oversight.

I say that because it was Sharon, after all, who instigated the whole mess with his armed visit to the Temple Mount.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Israeli aircraft fired missiles at a suspected rocket launching area in northern Gaza on Saturday, the military said.

It was the third such airstrike Saturday, and came in response to sporadic Palestinian rocket fire at Israeli border areas.

In addition, eight Palestinians have been killed in targeted Israeli missile strikes against suspected militants since Thursday.
