MIM: While waiting for the $350,000 + (terrorist stopping incentive) check provided by the US to clear members of the PA (Paid Assassin) 'security forces' are keeping busy during the 'cease fire' planting landmines and planning new attacks.
Which begs the question as to how many terrorists have decided to avail themselves of US Secretary of State Rice's offer of $100 dollar pensions for them to 'retire'. It would appear that jobs such as laying roadside bombs, which are described "as passive acts," would not effect these payments.
Since 'Cease Fire' - A Bomb Every Day
Saturday, February 19, 2005
Israeli soldiers Saturday discovered four bombs planted near Jewish towns in Gaza amid concerns that terrorists are "seeding" the area with land mines at the rate of more than one a day.
The four bombs discovered in northern and southern Gaza Saturday weighed more than 200 kilograms (440 pounds). Terrorists also shot a Kassam rocket Saturday at the Gush Katif town of N'vei Dekalim and opened fire on soldiers in the area as well as near the Egyptian border. No one was injured and no damage was reported.
"In the past three weeks, we have discovered an explosive device on the average of one a day," IDF sources reported. "This points to a method that terrorists have acquired since the beginning of the cease-fire, and it is potentially dangerous. They simply are filling the land with explosives. At least some of the [bombs] have been planted under the noses of PA police or through their looking the other way."
Soldiers discovered two of the bombs while patrolling near the town of Rafiah which straddles the Egyptian border. One of the devices was the same kind used by Hibullah terrorists in southern Lebanon when IDF troops were stationed there. Two other bombs were discovered near Kibbutz Alumim, a religious kibbutz inside the 1967 border.
Military sources said the explosive devices often "look like rocks" and are usually detonated through hidden wires. "Terrorists continue to work in a quiet way, far away from the cameras," the IDF sources report. "Planting a bomb is not an attack which is filmed and that way they appear to preserving the cease fire. Each explosive device is equal to several explosive belts and it is clear that if, Heaven forbid, an army vehicle trips a device, there will be injuries. But since we are talking about a roadside bomb attack, it is a 'passive act' without anyone even taking responsibility. This is considered legitimate by terrorist organizations."
