the grads were fired from gaza territory where hamas has full control (and taxes the importation of all goods that enter the via the tunnels)....the grads are military grade rockets that are more accurate, faster and carry larger warheads then the locally made katushas.

More so, the rockets, as per the news release, were fired from trucks in salvos, simaler to what hizballas does with iranian aid, hence we have the upgrade that hamas has be trying for and that we've all be "waiting for"...and that those would like to see the blockade lifted have always pretended couldn't happen. The quantities are relatively small but no doubt with the lax egyptian security in the sinai, the importation will continue....but at least they are not coming in boatloads with even larger warheads, longer range that so many here pretend couldn't happen

Now that a few more "million" israelis are in range of random rockets, eventually after a few hundred, israel will reinvade gaza and there will be the usual howls of protest as the IDF attempts to limit their use.....
