12-Jun-06: Military attacks on Israel continue
The onslaught continues, even as the Fatah and Hamas armies engage in a shooting war with each other. Late tonight, two more Qassam rockets are fired from northern Gaza into Israel. One lands on top of a car in the town of Sderot and injures a person walking by; two women suffer shock and receive medical treatment. A second Qassam lands in an open field. How the towns-folk of Sderot manage to keep their lives going on some sort of even keel is an ongoing astonishment. No less astonishing is how the daily acts of war - the hostile bombardment of Israeli civilian areas from across the border, with the active or passive connivance of the authorities in that area (i.e. the Hamas-led maybe-democratically-elected government of the Palestinian Arabs) - continue to get virtually no news coverage.
