It was, unfortunately, a matter of time. This morning two Israeli civilians were killed (including a 4-year-old boy), and at least 7 injured, in a Hamas rocket attack upon the Israeli town of Sderot. Though Sderot residents have been injured by the hundreds of Kassam rockets fired from Gaza in the past, this was the first lethal strike.
As HonestReporting has documented in the past, the media consistently downplayed the threat of terrorist rocket-fire on Sderot, suggesting it was nothing to really worry about, and that IDF strikes against the launching pads in Gaza were unnecessarily harsh. Perhaps now the media’s take on these ‘homemade’ and ‘inaccurate’ missiles will more accurately describe their deadly potential.
