    Are not intended to hit nothing and are definitely not "symbolic". They are meant tomaim and kill Israelis, or Jews if you wish. Owing to the poor quality of their rockets and Israel's elaborate defence the number of victims has so far been limited. Your remark (and many other of your posts) are hypocritical and shameless. The terrorists' intentions are clear and hence Israel has the right to defend its people and take action against these Hamas and Jihad thugs when there is a need and an opportunity. Yes, an elegant solution, because the target is not arbitrarily chosen, but hit spot-on. Quite different from the Hamas or Jihad tactics; they try to hit the Israeli civiliansindiscriminately. Besides, there are usually only very few additional casualties. No more violence or firepower has been applied than needed for executing the job. Elegant, isn't it?
