    "Did it ever occur to either of you that maybe the reason the IDF is firing into empty areas is to send a warning without hurting civilians in the hope that the gangs will back down?" - Danite To me any expenditure of ammunition has to have a plausible result. The idea that anyone is going to stop launching rockets because nowhere got blown up is silly. "Why dont you analyse why the gangs fire almost useless Kassams though the risk to their civilian population is high." - Danite I have pointed out repeatedly what a pathetic weapon the quassam is and how launching them is counter productive in both a strategic and tactical sense. The best I can come up with is that it makes them feel better to be able to strike back. ". . .If the IDF hits civilians by mistake then it is WAR CRIMES if they sont then it is laughable." - Danite No, if the IDF engages in collective punishment, or is reckless in killing civilians it would be a war crime.
