Senior Salafi: Fire on Eilat Won't Stop

A senior member of a Salafi militia in Gaza was cited by Ash-Sharq Il-Awsat, Friday, as saying firing on Eilat is part of the Islamic notion of jihad [holy war -ed.] and won't stop.

The terrorist reminded the London-based Arabic daily that the Salafis are not obligated by the Egyptian-brokered calm between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers, which was brokered after last fall's Pillar of Defense campaign against Gaza terrorists. He accused Hamas and Egypt of working together in a war against members of his organization, explaining that many of them had been arrested in Gaza on Egyptian orders and interrogated by Egyptian security.
