The terror-minded thugs of Gaza don't take the risks that they take in order to miss. It's just that hitting the target is a chancey thing for them, and they try their best. Fortunately they mostly fail, as tonight. But sometimes they don't.
And lest anyone here think that mortar fire is one of those playful, home-made kinds of thing, so beloved of liberal-minded journalists, here are some randomly-selected August 2012 reports to ponder:
- Mortar fire targeting Shiites kills three in Baghdad [August 25, 2012]
- Mortar fire hits Palestinian area in Damascus, killing 20 [August 4, 2012]
- Mortar fire at a funeral in Syria (0:56m Reuters video)
