Curbing rocket fire?
Kindergarten near-miss highlights Gaza risks
Hamas spurns permanent coexistence with the Jewish state, but its men have tried to curb the rocket fire from Gaza in recent years. Smaller groups continue to carry out attacks.
Why would you bias your news article with that statement?
How do you know Hamas leaders have tried to curb rocket attacks? To the best of my knowledge, they have tried to encourage rocket attacks.
When you are the reporter, you have a fiduciary duty to report the news – unless it is in your editorial column.
I am comfortable with that reference. Israel, for one, has said this in the past, although it also contends Hamas can do more.
You may wish to read this story from Jerusalem last year: “Israel general says Hamas curbing Gaza rocket fire“.
We have also written stories quoting factions leaders of other groups like the Islamic Jihad who accused Hamas forces of confiscating their rockets, etc. GBU Editor
