It is worth understanding the context of the rockets fired from Palestine into Israel. In the chapter titled "Gaza Under Assault" in his book Because We Say So (2015), the noted American academic Noam Chomsky quotes an "old man in Gaza" who held a placard that read: "You take my water, burn my olive trees, destroy my house, take my job, steal my land, imprison my father, kill my mother, bombard my country, starve us all, humiliate us all, but I am to blame: I shot a rocket back." This statement tells us a lot about the context of the Palestinian rockets fired into Israel.
