"Note that firing cannons on EMPTY areas is totally ineffective." - Ben Gurion If you mean it is totally ineffective in suppressing quassam fire, yes. The goal, I suspect, is political. To allow the IDF to appear to be doing something. Cannon fire, big explosions, see, hear, we are retaliating. Israelis seem satisfied 'something' is being done. The problem of random rocket and mortar attacks remains a very difficult one for military forces to deal with.
