Biased title, some facts about rockets fired into israel were downplayed. There was no breaking news article the past 5 days when over 213 rockets fell into Israel, a sovereign nation being provokingly attacked. If wikipedia wants to keep the appearance of impartiality and objectivity they need to a better job checking these things.
Rockets are fired into Israel everyday. And not everyday does the IDF take part in major offensives against Hamas, such as killing a top commander. Up until his death, at least from my point of view, there wasn't a need for a news article(s) for every one of the 200 rockets fired in the past 24 hours let alone a week. There was no "major" events up until the last few hours.
When people have the misfortune to be fed on a regular diet of coverage biased toward a POV they agree with, sometimes they mistake neutral coverage for "bias" against their accustomed POV.
What POV? The 200 rockets came first. Isreal responded and killed the stupid idiots. Ahh, I see, that was bias.
Not looking to legitimise the attacks but with the way Isreal has treated the Gaza strip since WWII may have contributed to the rocket attacks in the first place. From my POV Isreal just seems to act like the bully that says "I didn't do anything, he just kicked me".
The action words are "launches airstrikes" and "kills".....you're mistaken. There is no bias in the title. You may not like "who started it" or "who caused it" or "who did-what-first then my guys had to respond"..........but there's no bias in that title, I assure you. I should also point out, as we like to say in the great state of Texas, "I don't have a dog is this hunt!"
The number is now over 200. Please update. Here are sources http://www.jpost.com/Defense/Article.aspx?id=291859 http://www.jpost.com/DiplomacyAndPolitics/Article.aspx?id=291678
