Why aren't these violations of the truce?

Here's a small summary of what's happened the past couple of days in Israel:

- Yesterday, a Qassam rocket landed in an open area in the northern Negev south of Ashkelon, causing no injuries or damage.

- On Saturday, an Israel Defense Forces soldier was stabbed in the northern West Bank settlement of Ganim and his weapon was snatched from him.

- Later Saturday, Palestinians attempted to stab soldiers at the Beit Furik roadblock outside Nablus, Army Radio reported. None of the soldiers were hurt.

- Also Saturday two unarmed Palestinians were caught by an IDF force as they were trying to cross the border fence near the Kissufim crossing in the central Gaza Strip.

Other than that, the truce is still holding. Why isn't the media screaming that the Palestinians are violating the truce?
