I darn well know what a range is. I've ducked under enough barbed wire while live fire was directed over my head. There was no firing in these villages. Not all ranges are for firing purposes, some are for training. There was no compensation involved, since no damage was done or intended. Aside from that, the IDF has the run of the country and can do what it deems necessary to prepare for future events. Unlike Eric and yourself, who probably have never been there, I have, and not as a tourist. Eric is still sore because I outed him when he lied about who fired Clusters first in Lebanon.
