PT Watch - database of rocket and mortar attacks

A new website called PTWatch keeps track of all terror attacks from Gaza towards Israel since Israel's withdrawal. Using mostly Arab sources, it is recording every "projectile" attack that the terrorists take credit for themselves, and whether the target was civilian or military - according to the terrorists themselves.

The author said he was inspired by my Qassam calendar (thanks!) but, unlike my static monthly calendars, PTWatch is a full database where you can query any date or date range. It includes mortars as well. For each attack he includes a link back to the (usually Arab) news source that documents it, far more effectively than my calendars do - I pretty much gave up on linking back to every attack every day and only link to the most "representative" article I can find.
