It doesn’t change the fact it’s an act requiring response, but thank goodness the weapons are so inaccurate.
Most of them are inaccurate but there are quite a number of sophisticated rockets, especially in the north in the hands of Hezbullah. Hamas probably has some in Gaza too, but to use them would be a tactical mistake, escalating the conflict when they may not be ready to, revealing their weapons caches and tipping their hand in other ways. Hamas will hold them back until they feel its necessary, such as in if the Israelis were to mount another “incursion” into Gaza.
I am still in awe about the Iron Dome. They can take out these short range rockets. They are even capable to detecting if a rocket will land in empty field, and if so to let it go. It not only saves ammo but allows the system to focus on other rockets that may hurt people. Its really a huge technological leap that may some day render short range missiles totally ineffective weapons.
So far, I’m amazed that so few of those poorly guided missles have hit the Dome of the Rock, thereby reducing that fragile old building to a pile of rubble.
I don’t know how long it will take, but, after Hamas finishes clearing the top of the Temple Mount, there will lots of room to build the Third Temple.
