The cycle of violence continues....

An Islamic Jihad leader succumbed to his wounds from Hamas/Islamic Jihad clashes last month.

Naturally, there was a big noisy funeral.

Naturally, Islamic Jihad members chose that solemn occasion to throw stones at a nearby Hamas headquarters.

And just as naturally, Hamas responded with live fire, killing one and wounding four more.

We'll see what the death toll will be at this next person's funeral.

My count of Palestinian Arabs violently killed by each other this year climbs to 571.

UPDATE 11/8:
A bomb meant to kill IDF soldiers exploded prematurely in Nablus, killing one. 572.
