While I was learning to drink beer in the middle of a Alberta river for my summer vacation, Islamic Jihad members were off on a different tangent learning the fine art of kidnapping in the Gaza Strip. Ynet News:
It turns out that the Islamic Jihad has been spending its time in the southern part of the strip, holding 'training exercises' on how to kidnap Israeli soldiers in a manner similar to Hizbullah's 2006 attack. "Thousands of Palestinian fighters recently trained in how to kidnap Zionist soldiers," reported the London-based Arabic-language al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper on Monday, referencing the conservative Iranian Kayhan newspaper and Quds news agency.
No doubt the latest kassam launches were just a summer exercise in truce management and not a ‘truce violation’.
