Over 50 general warnings of planned terrorist attacks - including 11 specific warnings - are being considered by Israel's security services. The numbers are similar to those during the Oslo War days.

Six Kassam rockets were fired from Gaza at Israeli territory during and just after the Sabbath. A 13-year-old girl was treated for shock last night after a rocket landed south of Sderot. A second Kassam fell between Kibbutz Carmia and Zikim, south of Ashkelon, causing no injuries or damage. Four Kassam rockets were fired at Israel on Friday, landing uneventfully. On Friday afternoon, PA policemen defused two Kassams found in a launch pad in northern Gaza.

WorldNetDaily notes indications that elite Iranian soldiers have infiltrated Israel, establishing sleeper cells to be activated by Iran at a later date. The reports state that both Israeli and PA security services have searched Judea and Samaria for the Iranian soldiers, who may have infiltrated as long as three years ago.

The Lebanese terror organization Hizbullah has already moved its operational headquarters from Beirut to Gaza, and Al-Qaeda elements are already there.

Just a few days before last month's PA election, Iranian President Ahmadinejad met Hamas leaders Khaled Mashal and Musa Abu Marzuk in Damascus, together with the leaders of nine other Syria-based terrorist groups. They conluded that the conflict in Judea and Samaria will become a "focal point of the final war" between Islam and the West.
