I think this is fairly self-explanatory.  Israel and the west should not be willing to tolerate acts of war and intimidation like this.  Obviously they are trying to provoke a resistance group to attack Israel so they can have an excuse to annex more land, and as usual Israel can do whatever it wants in contradiction to international law and never face criticism and will never be acted on by the UN, and even if someone tried the US would veto any movement against Israel in the UN.

Israel fires missiles into Palestinian presidential compound

Israeli aircraft fired three missiles Tuesday into the Gaza Strip compound of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, injuring two people.

The Israeli army said it fired on a site used by militants to launch rockets into Israel earlier Tuesday. There were no reports of injuries in that attack.

Militants regularly fire missiles into Israel from Gaza, which Israel withdrew from last year after 38 years of occupation. While the homemade explosives rarely cause casualties, Israel has stepped up counterattacks in recent weeks.

Media reports said it was unclear why the president's compound was targeted. Abbas has criticized rocket attacks against Israel and has urged the Palestinian Authority's newly elected government to try to make peace with its neighbour.

The missiles landed at a mostly deserted base of the presidential guard, located about 100 metres from Abbas's office. The base had been used by Palestinian security forces to store equipment, but had been abandoned after previous Israeli strikes.

Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rdeneh urged the United States and other Western countries to intervene.

"This escalation will lead the area to more violence and instability," he told the Associated Press.

The Palestinian Interior Ministry, which oversees some of the territory's security forces, condemned the Israeli "aggression" and threatened retaliation.

"For every action, there's a reaction," ministry spokesman Khaled Abu Hilal told AP. "The occupation must understand that our people have the ability to be steadfast in confronting acts of occupation."

Palestinian security sources said the air strike was the first targeting one of its security compound in two years.
