An analysis and overview of the rocket attacks on Israel perpetrated by militant elements amongst Palestinians. Beginning in 2001 and continuing on some scale to this day, this rocket fire has largely replaced suicide bombing as the chosen method of combat by Palestinians against Israel and the Israeli Defense Forces.

From the Paper:

"In November of 2011, a surprising rocket attack on Israel took place from within Lebanon. The source of the attack was a Christian village not usually associated with such activity. Hezbollah was ruled out by most experts, but the act was seen as one with the motivation of "undermining stability in the area", according to UNIFIL. No rocket attacks have been launched into Israel from Lebanon since 2009.(Reuters, 2011)

"In December of 2011 more rocket fire was directed at Israel in response to an IDF assassination of a Hamas official. The Palestinian response involved a barrage of rocket fire, but resulted in no Israeli casualties. In turn, Israel itself responded with its own rocket launch, killing a Palestinian man and his 12-year-old son. The Israeli military immediately expressed regret for the civilian casualties, blaming a stockpile of ammunition at the camp that was the focus of the bombing and located near the home of the Palestinian civilians.

"As recently as February of 2012, yet another round of attacks have taken place between the two entrenched enemies. In response to rocket fire on Israel, Israel once again hit back with several strikes within Gaza, killing one Palestinian man according to Palestinians. The IDF released a statement in response to the incident, stating that, "The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel." (JTA, 2012)"
