Of course on the other side Israel shouldn't have to put up with rockets reigning down on their ppl non stop. CNN also had footage of rockets being intercepted and blown up in the sky over civilian populaces. No one wins in conflicts like this where the civilian populations are taking the brunt of the damage, regardless of who started it.
In an area like that that is so densely populated, civilian population is going to be hurt or killed....they are shooting at each other in an area about the size of New Jersey.
