Why are the Hezbollah bombs so inaccurate?

It might be an obvious question to the experts but why when Hezbollah are sending over so many thousands of rockets that so many are missing the targets? I thought that most modern rockets could be programmed with GPS co-ordinates to land at precise places. Do these rockets have any GPS guidance? or is someone playing with the GPS guidance?

Because they're not using modern rockets. They're using something like this

Hezbollah don't fire guided missiles, they fire unguided rockets.
All they can do is try to point the launcher at the approximate direction and angle, and hope to hit something.

This is why Katyushas are a terrorist weapons: They can't hit reliably a military target, they can only hit targets as big a cities, so they are used to target civilians. So far the "success" rate is about 133 rockets per death inflicted. Part of that is due to the fact most Israeli citizens have shelters for defence.

Q. Would that make America and GB in WW2 who bombed German cities indiscriminately, terrorists?

Q. Israel has killed about 900 Lebanese, 99.44% civilians. I don’t know how many rockets and bombs they have used.

Q. Israel has intentionally destroyed bridges and roads used to bring in food and medicine to civilians trapped in Beirut. Is that equal to genocide?

Like all wars in the 20th century, and now the 21st century, civilian deaths outnumber 10 to 100 to 1 for soldier deaths. Does that not make all wars acts of terror by all participants?

WW2 era Soviet area fire rockets not missiles - used originally to replicate an artillery 'stonk' rather than pin-point attack - plus the civilian GPS is only accruate to c. 10 mtrs; a significant error when calculating your initial position.

TBH they're getting more hits than anyone would have reasonably expected given the age of the system
