Israel hits back

Staying off the net, even temporarily, means that you miss out on some news stories of interest (and no, I still have not had my own rant about the recent lootings in London and other cities). Therefore, I come into the story of what is happening around Gaza, Sinai and southern Israel a littl late. But, not unexpectedly, Israel has retaliated for the terror attacks in southern Israel.
Palestinian sources told the BBC that four members of the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), a faction in Gaza that is loyal to Hamas but sometimes operates separately, had been killed in the air strikes, including the group's head, Kamal al-Nairab.
It is a little difficult to work out whether those Palestinian sources are pleased or upset at the development.

Meanwhile, here is a good summary of how it all developed, on Hot Air, who link to other stories, including a live-blog and AP, who point to an interesting link between these attacks and the growing lawlessness in Sinai.
