Cease fire funnies

Israel killed three Hamas terrorists planting a bomb by the border in Gaza.
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said the Islamist militant group, which leads a Palestinian unity government, has the right to respond to the deaths by "all means available".

He called the incident a violation of the five-month-old Gaza ceasefire, which all but collapsed earlier this week when Hamas's armed wing started firing rockets into Israel.

Abu Ubaida, a spokesman for the Hamas armed wing, said the four militants were on a "jihadist mission when the Zionist enemy opened fire on them".
At least Hamas is consistent: the "cease fire" is only broken when Israel does something, but "jihadist missions" are A-OK!
