ISRAEL CUTS GAZA FISHING ZONE AGAIN AFTER NEW FIRE BALLOONS

SOURCE: RT

Israel has cut the fishing zone it allows off Gaza in the third such response in a fortnight to Palestinian incendiary balloons.

As of Wednesday, the fishing limit for Gaza fishermen had been reduced from a maximum of 15 nautical miles to 10, AFP reported, citing an Israeli official.

Incendiary balloons from Gaza caused three blazes on Tuesday, according to a spokesperson for the Israeli fire service. They reportedly followed Israel’s move to restore the limit to 15 miles after a previous reduction in response to fire balloons last week.

The limit of up to 15 nautical miles set ahead of Israel’s April general election is the largest allowed in years. Human rights activists say it falls short of the 20 nautical miles agreed under the Oslo accords of the 1990s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is that old saying, "An Eye for an Eye, a Tooth for a tooth"!! (From the Code of Hammurabi. Hammurabi was King of Babylon, 1792-1750 BC), but there is a 20th century addition to that: "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, and suddenly, all are blind and toothless!!"

There are only two ways to look at the situation in Gaza right now; either Israel will, soon, exterminate every Gazan still breathing (lousy optics, guys!) or they will have to come to the table, and together, actually hammer out a way of living with each other, without killing each other.
With all the horrendous violence meted out, I would hope (and pray) for a plan B.

Sergei Lavrov, white courtesy telephone, please!!! Because if anyone on this planet might be able to sow the seeds of negotiation and peace, sir, it is you.
