The Kassam Truce

Ynet News reports kassams were again flying yesterday:
A Qassam rocket landed Saturday afternoon in an open area near a community in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. There were no reports of injuries or damage. The Color Red alert system was activated at around 1:05 pm in Sderot and the Gaza vicinity communities. Several seconds later, an explosion was heard near one of the communities.

On Thursday, two Qassam rockets landed in the western Negev. There were no reports of injuries or damage. The al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Fatah's military wing, claimed responsibility, saying the rockets were fired in response to the assassination of Talal Abed just outside the northern West Bank city of Jenin on Wednesday.
But never fear for Hamas is on the job:
Several hours later, Hamas announced it had arrested two Fatah members who had launched the rockets towards Israel. Hamas sources reported that "the rocket fire threatens the truce. This is an attempt to thwart the truce and not a response to Israel's actions."
Well, well, I am sure no one sleeps easier known Hamas is on alert.
