5-Jan-11: We're not hearing about these incoming rockets - but they keep coming
As reported by Arutz 7, two explosive shells fired today from the vipers' nest called the Gaza Strip crashed into open fields in the Eshkol Regional Council area. Fortunately, there was no injury to human life and no damage was reported. But this (as we try to point out at every opportunity) is not the intention of the jihadists. It's just the way it works out when you fire, as they do, in the general direction of the other side of the fence without caring one iota for where it lands or whom it hits. Any target, in the eyes of the Islamicist barbarians, is a legitimate target.
There are no caught-in-the-crossfire victims for them, and there never were. If they can hit or hurt someone or something, the ends fully justify the means. Thankfully their technical skills are at a primitive level, like their morality and ethics. So they generally miss. But not always.
Or their rockets and grenades crash on their side of the fence and damage or injure Gazan people or Gazan property which happens frequently but goes largely unreported and unremarked. Virtually no one on the Gazan side - other than the immediate victims - cares. Rocket firing into Israel, beyond the chance that it might deliver Israeli pain, is largely about baiting the Israeli side so that the inevitable civilian injuries and damage that follow from Israeli actions can get into the headlines and the seven o'clock news.
The day is not yet over.
