The commander of Hamas's armed wing in the Gaza Strip, Abdel Adi Siam, has ordered a halt to the Kassam fire at Israel because the group's rocket-launching bases and training camps have been damaged by IAF airstrikes, and because of pressure from Hamas's political wing, Israel Radio quoted Palestinian sources as saying Tuesday night. However, the group's leader in northern Gaza refused to obey the order, and has ordered that the Kassam fire continue, the report said.
