The problem with letting the Palestinians continue these rocket attacks without serious reprisal is that they’re learning, and getting better at it: Rocket wounds 25 in southern Israel.
JERUSALEM – A Palestinian rocket from the Gaza Strip landed near an army base in southern Israel early Tuesday, wounding 25 people, Israeli medics and the army said.
The army confirmed that a rocket had landed in a base about a half-mile north of the Gaza Strip and said dozens of people were being treated on the scene for moderate to light injuries.
Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fire crude rockets almost daily at towns in southern Israel, wreaking panic but rarely causing serious casualties. If confirmed, the injuries in Tuesday’s early morning attack would be the most caused by a single rocket.
