With Israelis focused on nature, naturally Gaza rocket fire focuses on Israelis

...It's likely there will be a response from Israeli forces, probably tonight, at which point the horror of living in the Israeli communities that are routinely at the receiving end of randomly-flung explosive rockets fired from Gaza into non-military targets will be ignored in the news reports. What makes headlines, as every editor knows, is Israeli military determination and Palestinian Arab victimhood. Stand by.

February in the northern half of Israel's southern Negev Desert region is the time for a riot of colour. Here's how one travel site describes it:

Every spring, the Negev desert starts to bloom and the ordinarily green landscape is covered with a magnificent carpet of scarlet red anemones. To celebrate this amazing natural wonder, the annual Darom Adom Festival dedicated to the very best of the region takes place during the month of February. Every weekend there will be guided tours, a farmers market, workshops and activities for children, bicycle tours and musical performances in select locations throughout the region. [Source]

Unfortunately February, along with all the other months of the year, is when the terrorism-addicted jihadists of the Gaza Strip celebrate the joys of flinging explosive rockets over the fence into whatever part of nearby Israel they can reach. Sometimes their prayers for victims or damage are answered. Tonight, thank Heavens, they were not, but they keep trying.

At about 4:45 pm today, as the light was failing towards the end of the Sabbath, the dreaded sounds of a different red phenomenon, the Tzeva Adom (Colour Red) incoming missile warning system, were heard throughout the northern south, followed by the sounds of explosion.
