Sderot and other towns and Kibbutzim around Gaza since 2001. The rockets keep getting larger and more lethal. The

places), Afik Zahavi, 4, Mordechai Yosepov, 49, Yuval Ababeh, 5 , and Ayala-Haya (Ella) Abukasis, 17 of Sderot, and Dana
Galkowicz, 24 of Kibbutz Bror Hayil (killed in N'tvi Ha'asarah). None of these people are soldiers. None of them

They were civilians, mostly children, minding their own business - all victims
of terrorist collective punishment, yet no human rights group protested.
