Palestinian security forces Hamas given the OK to fire on Israeli forces in Gaza

As opposed to launching rockets into populated areas, damaging an elementary school.

YNet - Palestinian interior and national security spokesman Abu Hilal sounded more determined when he stated clearly that orders have been given to Palestinian police officers and security forces to fire on Israeli troops.

This is the first time that official Palestinian sources say that an order have been given to Palestinian security forces to open fire at IDF forces operating in Gaza.

An interior ministry spokesman said that "the officers and security force members should open fire at the invading Israeli forces."

I'm not worried about the Israeli forces. I'll take them every day of the week and twice on Sundays over Hamas and whatever Palestinian security forces they claim aren't with Hamas.

UPDATE @ 4:08pm: Israelis kill 17. See told you I wasn't worried for the Israelis.
