Hamas: Israeli stupidity is forcing us to increase rocket attacks

With Kassam rockets still raining down on the cities in the western Negev, including Ashkelon, the Hamas military wing lashed out at Israel late Wednesday, saying that it was Israel, and not the Islamic group which was responsible for the escalation. "The increasing stupidity of Israel is forcing us to intensify the rocket fire, and to put thousands more Zionists in the line fire in order to protect the Palestinian people," a spokesperson for the military wing said.
