"We went to the police station and met the guy who's job it is to clear away the rockets, saw the unbelievable stack of hundreds of rockets behind the police station, including the one that fell 2 days ago. I got an education on the difference between an Islamic Jihad rocket (white or blue) and a Hamas rocket (red and green, plus different shaped fins). Saw the Grad that landed in Askelon a few weeks ago (Grads fall straight down, which allows them to spread 200 yards from impact and kill more people)."
