Israelis have long understood the truly indiscriminate nature of those rockets that are embedded and hidden away by the tens of thousands in every corner of the Gaza Strip. The men doing the firing care not one bit for questions like who gets hurt or what is destroyed so long as the effect is to sow terror.
The fire tonight coincided with a formal visit by a high-level representative of the United Nations bureaucracy on Sunday, the first since the "reconciliation deal agreed in Gaza City's Beach Camp between long-time rival Palestinian factions, Fatah and Hamas" (to quote a UN News Center media release issued yesterday). Robert Serry, the UN's senior envoy in the Middle East and "the UN Secretary-General’s Personal Representative to the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestinian Authority", held well-publicized meetings with several of the newly-sworn-in ministers in the Fatah/Hamas axis government and "pledged the Organization's ongoing support as the nascent process moves forward..."
The nascent process did indeed move forward tonight. Fortunately the damage was minor.
