A Mortar, A Rocket, A Question

This past week, a kassem rocket slammed into Ashkelon and exploded. It hit the ground a mere 7 meters from a kindergarten. By the grace of God alone, none of the children were injured, but a 15-year-old girl was lightly wounded from exploding shrapnel and two others were taken to the hospital suffering from shock. Several mortars were fired at Israel this week, the latest only moments ago.

If you didn't hear about it, you are to be forgiven. How could you hear what wasn't reported? How could you know what the media refuses or can't be bothered to divulge?

This week, the army bombed seven tunnels that were being dug in order to enter Israel and attack - similar to the attack that led to the agonizing captivity of Gilad Shalit for the last 1,600+ days. Shots were fired at an IDF patrol near the border. You might not have heard about these incidents. How could you hear what isn't reported.

In the last few minutes, a rock attack was announced near Maale Shomron. Last night around midnight, there was a rock throwing attack near Beit Illit, just south of Jerusalem. Yesterday, in two different places, Arabs threw large, sharp objects at Jews in cars - several cars were damaged, though thankfully the drivers were able to maneuver their way around to safety. How could you know what the media refuses or can't be bothered to divulge?
