Qassam and Grad missiles often are described as exploding “in open areas,” but it only takes one that actually succeeds in hitting a home to realize the devastation an attack causes.

Gaza terrorist groups and the IDF resumed another stage of “Hamas roulette” in which rockets that land in open areas are met with a symbolic response against “a terror tunnel” or “weapons storeroom,” while physical injuries merit a more serious Israeli military retaliation.

Two farm workers were seriously wounded last week in an explosion in an “open area” but others escaped injury but were left nearly homeless, as the photos from the IDF illustrate.
