January 2, 2007

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip fired mortar shells which landed near the Karni goods crossing. One person was lightly wounded and was evacuated to the Soroka Medical Center in Beer Sheba. A truck was also damaged. Despite the rocket fire, the crossing remained open.[205]

January 3, 2007

A Qassam rocket fired Wednesday evening from the Gaza Strip landed north of the Erez Crossing. No one was wounded and damage was not caused. Palestinian gunmen fired two rockets towards Israel. One was apparently aimed towards Ashkelon but landed in an open area on the Gaza side. Another rocket landed in the Shaar Hanegev local council near a kibbutz. There were no reports of injuries or damages.[205]

January 5, 2007

Friday morning, Palestinians fired two Qassam rockets at western Negev communities while many of Sderot's residents attended Shabbat prayers in the southern town synagogues. One missile, described as a larger than normal model of the Kassam, slammed into a residential building in the Negev town of Sderot, causing extensive damage to two homes.

The families from both homes were warned of incoming rockets 10–15 seconds earlier, and were heading to their safe rooms when the missile plowed through the wall, destroying a balcony, bringing down a roof, and shredding walls inside the homes with shrapnel.

Two women suffered from extreme shock, and one woman fainted and was in need of medical treatment.

The second rocket landed in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council, near a kibbutz. There were no injuries.[206][207][208][209] The al-Quds Brigades claimed responsibility.

January 12, 2007

Four Kassams landed in the western Negev on Friday afternoon. No one was wounded and no damage resulted from any of the hits.

Near the Gaza-Israel border fence, IDF soldiers discovered a 12-kilogram bomb. Sappers detonated the device in a controlled explosion, and no one was wounded. Another bomb was discovered In the West Bank. Sappers destroyed the 35-kg. bomb without incident.

IDF and Shin Bet announced that they had arrested on Tuesday, Za'ahad Dagrah, 36, suspected of perpetrating a shooting attack on an Israeli neighborhood. He was also suspected of being an active member of a terror cell planning attacks against Israelis. He was apprehended by security forces near Ramallah and detained for interrogation.

Overnight Thursday, IDF troops arrested four Palestinian fugitives and uncovered a weapons cache in separate operations in the West Bank.

Three Hamas operatives were arrested near Bethlehem and a fourth Hamas member near Hebron. IDF soldiers also found an M-16 rifle and dozens of bullets while conducting sweeps in Kfar Ekev, near Ramallah.[210]

(The above includes events occurring in the West Bank, to which the 2006 Israel-Gaza conflict and the cease-fire do not apply. It is a recent glimpse of the ongoing situation in that region as well between Israelis and Palestinians.)

January 14, 2007

A Givati Brigade's Shaked Battalion force identified two suspicious figures crawling near the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip south of Moshav Nativ Ha'asarah. The force called out on the two figures, discovered to be terrorists, and when the two did not stop the force fired at them. A large explosion sounded due to the explosives the Palestinians were wielding, and the militants were killed. It is not clear if they had planned to cross the fence into Israeli territory or place the explosives next to the fence in order to target an IDF patrol.
The IDF has released the video (Terror Attack Thwarted by Shaked Battalion, IDF presents: How to foil a terror attack)

In a cabinet meeting Sunday, Minister for Strategic Affairs Avigdor Lieberman, Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Eliyahu Yishai, and Minister for Jerusalem Affairs Jacob Edery voiced their objection to Israel's continuing restraint in the face of Palestinian violations of ceasefire (including firing over 100 Qassams) declared between the two sides a month ago.[211][212]

January 16, 2007

Two Qassam rockets struck Israel; one struck the western Negev, while the other hit south of Ashkelon.

Palestinians fired on IDF troops near the security fence along the Gaza border, and in Jenin, an explosives device was set off near troops, who also came under fire. There were no injuries in all of the incidents. An IDF reserve soldier was lightly injured Tuesday when a burning tire exploded near the village of Qibya. Palestinians placed ammunition in the tire and then set it ablaze near the separation fence.[213]

January 21, 2007

Three mortar shells landed near the border fence in central Gaza early and two Qassam rockets struck an open area near Sderot. No injuries were reported in either attack. The Al-Quds Brigades claimed responsibility for the Qassams, saying they were in response to IDF actions against Islamic Jihad militants in the West Bank.[214]

January 22, 2007

Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired three Qassam rockets at Israel. One of the rockets was fired in the afternoon at strategic facilities located in Ashkelon, but it could not be determined exactly where the rocket hit. Two additional rockets were fired Monday evening at Sderot, and apparently hit in open areas.[215]

January 25, 2007

Four Qassam rockets were fired from the northern Gaza Strip Thursday evening, landing in open areas in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council and causing panic among school children. There were no reports of injuries or damage.[216]

January 28, 2007

Palestinian gunmen launched two Qassam rockets Sunday evening towards Israel. One rocket was fired at Sderot, and the other at Ashkelon. No injuries were reported in the strikes. The al-Quds Brigades, claimed responsibility for the fire.[217]

January 29, 2007

Eilat bakery bombing - Mohammed Saksak from Gaza blows himself up in an Eilat bakery, killing 3 civilians

February

February 1, 2007

Three Qassam rockets fired at Israel from the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday night landed in open fields in the western Negev, one near a cemetery in Sderot. The al-Quds Brigades claimed responsibility. The group issued a statement saying the attacks were in response "to the assassination of Palestinian activists today (Thursday) in Nablus and Tul Karm" and the arrest of a senior Islamic Jihad official in Nablus on Wednesday. In the statement the group urged rivals Fatah and Hamas to overcome their rivalry, and direct their arms at the "the real enemy" - Israel – instead of killing each others in the streets of the Gaza Strip. Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz picked the Israel Armament Development Authority (RAFAEL) to develop a system against short and medium range rockets.[218]
