Hamas Bombs Border Crossing After Jimmy Carter Meeting

That didn’t take long… Hamas suicide bombers blew up a car near the Kerem Shalom crossing point in the Gaza Strip Saturday injuring 13 Israeli soldiers. 3 Hamas terrorists were killed.

This took place as Jimmy Carter held a second meeting with Hamas’ exiled political chief Khaled Mashaal in Syria on Saturday.

Hamas promised more vicious attacks in the near future.
Reuters reported:

Hamas claims responsibility for a suicide blast at the Kerem Shalom crossing point. At least one car laden with explosives was detonated at the key crossing point, wounding 13 Israeli soldiers in an attack the militants say may be the trigger for broader campaign to force open the borders of the Gaza Strip.

Hamas said the suicide bombings were a warning of what could be a popular explosion in the face of Israel’s ten-month siege of the Gaza Strip, Hamas leaders said on Saturday.
