5. I've debunked this crap before...let me do it again...

The Quassam III (current production) which you call "glorified fireworks", carries 22 lbs/352 ounces warhead. By comparisons, the basic M67 hand grenade has 6.5 ounces of explosive fill. It is great for killing everyone in a pillbox or room. It can blow up cars. It has a lethal radius of 5 meters a casualty producing radius of 15 meters and fragments can disperse as far as 230 meters. The rockets are not "glorified fireworks" they are terror weapons. They are unguided and Hamas is not given the time nor does it have forward observers to "walk them in" on targets, which is the reason for the lack of success.

The IDF does not use rockets, it uses missiles. Those are in some what guided to targets and have a much higher probability of hitting what they were aimed at.

This is Gaza, not the West Bank. There are no settlements. Just Hamas...
