Out of 650 rocket launches, only 28 have actually hit resdiential area,.This is due mainly to the "Iron dome" defence system which was largley funded by the United states. Thank you USA, you have saved many civilians lives.
Gazan groups fired over 100 rockets and mortars at Israeli cities and towns. A barrage against Sderot, timed to coincide with the morning commute to work, injured 3 people. One victim, physical education teacher Moshik Levy, was moderately wounded by shrapnel and glass from his car windshield which exploded in his face. A fourth person was injured while fleeing for cover, and five more people were treated for acute stress reaction. Two homes, one in Sderot and one in the Eshkol Regional Council, were damaged by direct rocket hits. United States Ambassador Dan Shapiro declared that his country "supports Israel’s right to defend itself and its citizens from these attacks.
This is happened before Israel Killed their "militant" so now answer me, why hamas started this before the elections?
The only thing that the U.S. funding are the Iron Dome and the Arrow system. Both are missile defense systems. the Reason for this is that the U.S. wants Israel to respond in moderation toward the Arabs.
