Timeline of Rocket Attacks from Gaza

Since 1947, the timeline of Arab-Israeli conflict is ripe with promises, terrorism and bombings. Israel has blossomed as a rose; the West Bank and Gaza continue to be rotting slums.

Since 2001, the number of rockets fired from Gaza into Israel has gone largely unreported in the west. Gaza Arabs got great coverage when they broke down barriers and went into Egypt for supplies and for who knows what else.

-- In 2001, 249 rockets and mortar shells are fired by Palestinian terrorist groups (245 mortars and 4 rockets).
-- In 2002, 292 rockets and mortar shells are fired by Palestinian terrorist groups (257 mortars and 35 rockets).
-- In 2002, 292 rockets and mortar shells are fired by Palestinian terrorist groups (257 mortars and 35 rockets).
