As the deaths of Gazan children in Jabalia on Aug 6, 2022 was shown to be a result of, yet, another Islamic Jihad failed rocket, one should remember the wider deadly problem in that circle.
The BBC's Jeremy Bowen, reporting from Gaza on May 21, 2021, (amidst Guardian of Walls against Hamas barrage of rockets) showed a Gazan in the crowd screaming in ecstatic: "We sacrifice everything for Jerusalem. I'm sacrificing my wife my child for Jerusalem." While cheers can be heard. And this is how he reported it on BBC live TV.

Fifty-seven percent of respondents justified rocket launching from within populated areas; but a large discrepancy existed between Gaza — which suffered the brunt of the Israeli attacks — with 48% support, and the West Bank, with 62%.

The media will never report this on the evening news. Or attribute one civilian death to this practice.
ThatÃ¢ÂÂs why they are called TERRORSTINIANS.

The terrorists sought and found new bases in Lebanon...
The Deliberate Use of Civilians as Shields Since the beginning of its operations against Israel, the PLO has cynically used heavily populated areas — such as refugee camps or inhabited areas in Beirut and other towns in Lebanon — as bases of operation.
Aware of Israeli reluctance to harm civilians, it has thus often used the latter as human shields.
And indeed, Israel acted with restraint. It elected not to attack targets in the midst of the refugee camps or the towns, but on their peripheries, in order to innocent human lives and ... However, Israel has no choice but to act in self-defense as long as acts of terrorism continue against its people ...
