The people that have been seriously injured the most by the most recent Qassam barrages have not been Israelis, but Palestinian Arab children!

The Gaza-based Palestinian Centre for Human Rights details the circumstances of five recent injuries:
According to investigations conducted by PCHR, at approximately 16:15 on Monday, 22 December, 2008, 3-year-old Myassar Mousa Wahdan, was injured in the abdomen and chest and her 5-year-old brother, Mohammed, was injured in the head by shrapnel from a locally produced rocket that was fired by members of the Palestinian resistance. The rocket fell on agricultural land near Beit Hanoun Agriculture College in the north to Beit Hanoun town in the northern Gaza Strip. The two children were immediately transferred to Beit Hanoun Hospital for treatment. Medical sources described the wounds of Myassar as serious and reported that she was admitted into the intensive care unit. The wounds of Mohammed were described as moderate.

In another incident, at approximately 17:30 on Sunday, 21 December, 2008, Hanan Sohwail, 32, was lightly wounded by shrapnel to the right hand when a locally produced rocket exploded near her house in al-Zaytoun quarter in the west of Beit Hanoun Town. She was immediately taken to Beit Hanoon Hospital for treatment.

At approximately 14:40 on Saturday, 20 December, 2008, a locally produced rocket fired by members of the Palestinian resistance fell near a group of children who were playing in a bystreet to the east of the industrial zone, west to Beit Hanoon town. Shrapnel from the rocket wounded two children. The two children were taken to Beit Hanoun Hospital for treatment and then transferred to the intensive care unit at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, since their wounds were serious. The two children were identified as Sari Mana’a al-Sama’ana, 9, and Safi 'Eid al-Sama’ana, 8.
Where are the bleeding hearts who cry over every Palestinian child injured by the heartless Zionist interlopers? Where are the journalists who even find out about these incidents?

The above episodes were not reported in any Arabic or English-language news source that I am aware of. The idea of Arab children being maimed by Palestinian Arab rockets is simply not considered newsworthy.

Qassam rockets meant to kill and injure Jewish children are more effective against the very people that terror groups insist to the world they are defending.

(I erroneously wrote 5 children injured at LGF, not four children and an adult, but I cannot edit it.)

UPDATE: Arutz-7 wrote about this an hour after I posted it, using the same terminology - that more Gaza children were hurt than Jews. What a coincidence!
