By YAAKOV KATZ, JPOST STAFF AND AP
Israel unleashed five air strikes on Hamas targets a few minutes apart Saturday, killing four Hamas terrorists and wounding at least 30, some seriously, according to Army Radio.
One man, seriously wounded in the attack, died later in hospital, bringing the death toll up to five.
The first strike hit a Hamas installation in Gaza City’s Zeitoun neighborhood, where wounded Palestinians were being pulled from the rubble of a destroyed building. All the wounded were members of Hamas’s security forces and as of Saturday afternoon all structures belonging to Hamas’s security forces in Gaza were completely destroyed as a result of IAF strikes.
Palestinians use heavy equipment to search for bodies after an Israeli missile strike on a Hamas base killed four militants in the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City, Saturday.
Another air strike hit a Hamas training camp on the outskirts of Shati refugee camp. There were no reports of casualties. Minutes later, a third strike hit a Hamas installation in the southern town of Rafah, security officials said. The area was hit a few days before, and the officials didn’t know of any casualties.
A fourth strike targeted a Hamas training base in a former Jewish settlement near the southern town of Khan Younis. The latest strikes, including one on a key Hamas compound, brought to 11 the number of targeted missile attacks Saturday.

Air strikes means Car Swarm, as usual: Fun for the whole family!
Another IAF airstrike against another car full of terrorists in Gaza leads to another car swarmâ€”and another round of bizarre, out-of-sync wire service photo captions about “inspecting” and “gathering around” the bombed-out cars full of martyr bits.

State Department Defends Islamic Terrorists
This is why Condi, Burns, Hadley the whole bunch of Arabist apologizers must go. The whole State department must be purged. We will not win this war with assclowns like this;
Israel insists that the 33 Hamas officials arrested in a security crackdown in the West Bank on Thursday morning were linked to terror, even though they are nominally members of Hamas’s political wing.
The sweep, which came ahead of the weekend detention of Hamas minister Wafsi Qabha in Jenin, was criticized by the US State Department. Read it all
