Friday night's rocket almost (but thankfully not quite) delivered what the terrorists pray for: serious harm. It exploded in an established part of the city where the residences are mainly single-family dwellings, and exploded in someone's back yard, causing damage to the home, shrapnel damage to some of the neighbouring homes, and pushing one person into a state of shock. Ynet has the image above.
Experience tells us that people who don't know Israel from up close have the impression that these attacks from Gaza's rocket-rich terror organizations crash into one-horse towns on the Israeli side. So let's take a glance at an aerial view of the commercial district of Netivot.
