Over 7,000 deadly rockets have been launched into Israel’s southern civilian communities since Israel’s complete unilateral withdrawal from Gaza in 2005. (As a point of comparison, there were less than 500 such attacks between 2001 and 2005.).
On Monday, August 1, Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired a Kassam rocket into in the Hof Ashkelon Region wounding an Israeli (Bedouin) Arab woman. The 55-year-old woman, Fatma Saria, was treated for shrapnel wounds, and several others were treated for shock.
The rocket landed near a Bedouin tent site.
Saria described the moment she was hit:
“The explosion caught me as I was going to sleep. My husband came and tried to bandage my foot. He drove me to the kibbutz and there they bandaged me and took me to the hospital.”
The attack on Israeli civilians wasn’t even noted by the Guardian nor, from what I can tell, by the rest of the mainstream media.
Unjust? Beyond description.
