(BBC News) At least 15 Palestinians have been killed and scores injured in a blast during a parade by the militant Hamas group in the Gaza Strip. A truck carrying gunmen and home-made weapons blew up during the rally in the Jabaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza...
Palestinian witnesses said a crowd, including many children, swarmed round the truck moments before the explosion.
As why children were allowed near explosives is anyone's guess, but it seems Hamas's lack of common sense has resulted in the deaths of Palestinian civilians, many of them children. Hamas is denying it's own blunder, blaming the worlds favorite scape goat, Israel, but the Palestinian Authority is holding Hamas responsible for the incident.
(BBC News) Video filmed during the rally showed a large cloud of white smoke rising into the sky, as hundreds of people ran from the scene of the blast...
An unnamed witness was quoted by Reuters news agency as saying "I was thrown several metres, then I looked behind and I saw people dismembered and lying on the ground dead."
The Associated Press news agency quoted another man, who gave his name as Hussam, as saying he helped pull three men out of the truck, two dead and one alive but with a severed leg.
It appears that tensions are building in Gaza after the Israeli settlement pull out, as Hamas (along with other terrorists organizations) have successfully smuggled weapons into the region with suspicion that Al Qaeda may have entered in as well. If Abbas is unable to prove his ability to govern Gaza then Israel really has no obligation to negotiate any peace deal with the PA. As long as terrorist groups demonstrate their hatred towards Israel via armed parades, why should anyone expect peace in a region long dominated by violence and bloodshed.
