Guess what? There was a truce since November!

A number of newspapers are reporting some astonishing news this morning:
A Hamas sniper in the Gaza Strip shot and wounded an electric company worker on the Israeli side of the border Monday in the Islamic movement's first acknowledged breach of a 4-month-old truce with Israel.
And Reuters' version:
Gaza -- The armed wing of Hamas said it carried out its first attacks yesterday against Israel since a shaky November truce in the Gaza Strip, shooting a utility worker near the border and firing two mortar bombs at soldiers.

Wow, in the wake of the hundred of Kassams fired at Israel since November, as well as other attacks, was it really true that Hamas has not taken credit for any of these?

Well, according to the Al-Qassam Hamas website - not quite:
  • January 11, 2007: Al-Qassam Brigades Bring down A Zionist drone
  • December 29, 2006: Husam Al-Zumile &Muhammad Al-Masri were martyred during a resistance mission
  • Novemebr 26, 2006 (the first day of the truce):Three Qassam rockets were fired at the Zionist " rocket launches" and " Ra'eem settlement"
Not to mention that the Hamas-led PA promised to stop Islamic Jihad rocket fire during the truce as well.
