When they speak in English, the Gaza terror groups like to pretend that their shooting rockets at Israel are being done for purely military means, and that they target only soldiers and IDF bases.
In Arabic, though, they brag that the purpose of the rockets is to terrorize civilians.

The same newspaper loves publishing pictures of terrified Israelis, to show Islamic Jihad's might at being able to force Beersheva women in their pajamas to run out of their houses:
They are also very proud that classes in Beersheva schools are affected by the rocket fire.
