so how is it that when a truck-mounted missile is rolling along in a Hamas military parade the IDF doesn't send down a Hellfire on it?
Why aren't Israeli missiles raining down on Hamas missile-firing positions? Surely the IDF has the means to locate a missile launcher almost instantly- and vaporise it, along with any personnel operating it.
I know Israel has fantastic optical spy satellites watching Gaza. It shouldn't be possible for a rocket to be launched at night without being seen. and if there's heavy cloud cover, infrared target recognition is old technology.
And if launched during the day, the smoke and chemical signature trail should allow the launch site to be quickly found and destroyed. Since many launch pads are in close proximity to tunnels, they should all be attacked with force.
Looking at the pictures of tonight's attacks on Gaza, the size of the secondary explosions prove that weapons caches are being destroyed. Maybe Israel needs to go after the supplier of those weapons caches...
Hey, if Hamas can 'accidentally' launch a few missiles into Israel, who says a few missiles might not accidentally find their way to Tehran??
