Anarchy continues in Gaza and the Palestinian areas

Gaza and the Palestinian Authority continue to slide into anarchy.

Today, a group of al-Aksa gunmen took over the Palestinian Authority offices in Northern Gaza demanding jobs and payoffs. And further gunfights broke out at greenhouses in the Gaza Strip. Jerusalem Post | Breaking News from Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World
The gun battles were only the latest sign of anarchy in Gaza, where armed men have repeatedly taken over government buildings and kidnapped foreigners to pressure the government to put them on the already inflated payroll or otherwise pay them off.

In other news, IDF helicopters fired three missiles at the Gaza Strip overnight Monday in an attempt to prevent future Kassam rocket attacks on southern Israel.

The first missile destroyed a bridge near Beit Hanun used by terrorist groups as an access route to the northern part of the Gaza Strip. This is the second time the bridge has been destroyed.

Also hit was a building serving the Aksa Martyrs' Brigades, as well as at a building used to recruit new members to the Palestinian group in Beit Lahiya.

Israel appears to be going back to the non-productive strategy of dropping leaflets and than blowing up empty buildings...long after the terrorists have departed.
