Palestine and the Arab World

Arab democracy and resistance

How come we count the ‘rockets’ fired by Palestinians but not bombs, shells and Drone strikes by Israel?

I listen to and read the news every day.  Inevitably the reports read like football results.  “Four more rockets fired by Hamas” and “seven locations hit through the night by Israel”. Does this way of reporting only confuse me?  Some extremely heavy-duty bombs are being dropped on Gaza.  The shelling at times is constant and there are always drones in the air.  Hamas’s military wing have home made ‘rockets’ which are met with Iron Dome.  


We all need to know exactly what weapons Israel are using in civilian built up areas.  There are restrictions of what can and cannot be used. Israel must be made to answer for its attacks, its choice of weaponry.  All international efforts must be focused around lifting the closure, opening Rafah and getting Israel’s leaders in front of the International Criminal Court.
