Subtle Diplomatic Signals from Hamas

At least twenty-five mortar shells and Kassam rockets have landed on Gaza Strip settlements since 2:00 a.m. Thursday, hitting settlements in Gush Katif, southern Gaza, and northern Gaza, according to the IDF.

OC Southern Command, Maj.-Gen. Dan Harel, is currently meeting with the commander of PA forces in Gaza, Mussa Arafat. The meeting was scheduled several days ago, but will naturally deal with Thursday's barrages. Harel is expected to demand of Arafat to crack down on the firing squads.
