1-May-12: Incoming rocket tonight missed and exploded harmlessly. But how long...?

The wail of the Color Red (Tzeva Adom in Hebrew) incoming-missile warning system sounded right across southern Israel's communities about an hour ago - about 9:45 pm Tuesday night, Israel time. Seconds later, a Qassam rocket - despatched with extreme malice by the terrorists who infest the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip - exploded somewhere (not disclosed by the authorities in this country) in the Hof Ashkelon region, according to Ynet.

The inhabitants of the area have already absorbed hundreds of such rockets in the past several years. This time, there are no reports of injuries or property damage - which is plainly not for lack of destructive intentions by the jihadists. The numbers are on the side of these malevolents: their stock of rockets is counted in the tens of thousands. At some point, every once in a while, they get lucky.

If you have not already done so, please now read our post of several hours ago: "1-May-12: If rocket attacks are no big deal for us, what should we expect our friends to say and do?"
