GAZA: Violence across the Israeli-Gaza border escalated on Friday with Israeli air strikes killing at least three people and Palestinian militants firing rockets deep into southern Israel. The latest round of fighting erupted on Thursday when an Israeli air strike targeted a car on a crowded Gaza street, killing two militants who Israel said were planning attacks against its civilians and soldiers. Palestinian gunmen responded with a barrage of rockets fired deep into southern Israel

Rather than 500lb bombs blowing out whole neighborhoods of windows and traumatizing the non-fighting population with every bombing run......set up a chain of artillery fire bases and just bombard the launch site within a 20-25 meter radius. The locals might start shooting the missile teams personally when they know these fighters showing up with their pickup truck launch platform means THEY, the civilians, are about to eat the return fire...and within a a couple minutes, at most.
Just my attempt at a fair assessment in an incident where guilt sits on both sides of the border to varying degrees, IMHO.
Notice how the media calls the Palestinian fighters are pejoratively described as 'gunmen'.... Which would make the Israeli airmen 'air-gunners' in my eyes...
