BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces launched an air strike on the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday evening targeting a rocket launch site, according to a statement by Israeli forces.

The statement said that the air strikes targeted a rocket launching site in order "to eliminate an imminent threat against Israel."

Israeli website Walla said that Israeli aircraft targeted a rocket launch pad in the town of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip as it was preparing to fire rockets towards Israel.

Earlier in the day, Israeli forces opened fire on protests near the Gaza Strip border, injuring one Palestinian.

While Hamas itself does not routinely fire rockets, Israel says it holds the group, which seized power in Gaza in 2007, responsible for such attacks.

Hamas and Israel have maintained a fragile ceasefire since Nov. 2012, when Israeli forces launched a major assault that killed around 170 Gazans.

So, at the end of the day... The mighty isreali army was not attacked... It was attacking... With highly advanced killing machines.. Virtually unarmed civilian population... And trying to cry all the while.. How victimized they are.. How the whole world is against them.. Such a morally bankrupt, and sick society...

' ...Israeli aircraft targeted a rocket launch pad...' The thing is, this is Israel-speak. A 'rocket launch pad' would probably be called 'some flat pavement' in most countries.

"such attacks" ? What attacks ? This reference and the sentence beginning "While Hamas ..." make no sense in the context of the article.
