The military wing of Hamas has launched attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers, often describing them as retaliatory, in particular for assassinations of the upper echelon of their leadership.

The General Assembly is expected to vote early next week on the proposed resolution condemning rocket firings into Israel and demanding that Hamas end the use of violence. If adopted, it would mark the first time the assembly has voted to condemn Hamas, the Islamist militant group that has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007. Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon told reporters U.S. diplomats were in talks with their EU counterparts on the draft text. European backing would significantly boost chances of approval by the 193-nation body.
