Summary of rockets fired into Israel, February 2012

“Ten days, ten rockets and not one condemnation.”

At a week where various campuses and colleges are cynically used as the platform of one-sided hate-filled mostly blinded propaganda, it seems more than appropriate to quote this line from a letter Israel sent to the United Nations, two days ago.

The past month saw some tough weather in the area, which terrorists in Gaza took advantage of, hoping the bad weather would damange Israel’s detection systems capabilities.

Overall, in February 2012, 31 rockets and mortar shells were fired at civilian populations by terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
