More than ten thousand missiles, rockets and mortars have been launched against residents in the southern part of our country in the last few years. During the Second Lebanon War a few years ago, thousands more were aimed at our northern residents.
These rockets are weapons meant to terrorize. They are not accurate, not guided. They are launched with the intention to cause great fear and, if the winds are kind to those who launch them, damage, murder and mayhem as well. Israel has been dealing with this problem for years. We have shown restraint. We have withstood rocket attack after rocket attack. We have buried our sons and daughters, our grandfathers, our babies.
We are angry that there are those who believe it is acceptable to launch rockets at cities, schools. We are defiant and we will survive.
These pages tell the story of rockets against civilians, missiles against children. We have documented the evidence of acts of war and terror against civilian populations. This is the story of the use of Katyusha missiles and Kassem rockets against Israel from Lebanon during the Second Lebanon War and ongoing attacks by Palestinians from Gaza.
They are aimed at our civilians – our message – Am Yisrael Chai
The Nation and People of Israel (and Sderot) Lives!
