Why are the Hamas rockets launched from residential areas? Do they want civilians killed in the retaliation? I suspect so. Despicable.
Something I expected to see on the news but didn't: at least one rocket made it to Beer Sheva, much deeper into Israel than Hamas's usual, every day, rockets. This would make it look like an import. Doesn't Tehran know that the Mossad and/or CIA will be able to determine it's origin?
Correction: It seems Iran's 122mm rockets don't have the range -- these new ones came from China. OK China, your name goes in the book, again.
