M23 Continues Despite UN Warnings

Despite United Nations warnings to stop, rebels in Congo continue their push forward near Goma.

The M23 rebels are back by Rwanda, and possibly Uganda as well.

Saturday saw UN helicopters fire on M23 positions, in an attempt to halt their progress.

If M23 continues they will be fighting UN troops on the ground as well.

As of last reports, the rebel lines are less than two miles from Goma, which is a provincial capital.

Sources say that around 3,500 Ugandans have now directly joined the rebel army.

UN troops say that the rebels are extremely well equipped.

Israel carried out another assassination, Sunday afternoon, following the firing of dozens of more rockets out of Gaza.

The target, this time, was the head of Hamas' rocket program, Yahyia Byya.

He was the man responsible for most of the rocket attacks, over the last week.

Other targets were hit as well, by both naval and aerial units.

One air strike wounded journalists, who were present at a Hamas Headquarters, Israel responded to their complaints by warning them not to be near Hamas, for their own safety.

According to Gazan press, over sixty people have been killed by Israeli strikes, some of whom have been civilians.

This comes despite Israel doing everything it can to pinpoint it's strikes, but as long as Hamas uses human shields, there will be civilian casualties.

Israeli Defense Forces are continuing to build up along the border, in case ground assault becomes necessary.

Air raid sirens continue to sound all over southern Israel, as more rockets are fired.

Injuries are mounting on the Israeli side of the border, and they've not gone without their own deaths to the terrorist attacks.

Since Wednesday, over five hundred rockets have struck Israel, while around three hundred more have been stopped by Iron Dome defense batteries.

Another one hundred missed Israel and struck Gaza itself.
