The Gaza NGO Safety Office tries to keep a count of rocket fire. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be accurate, but its tallies are still notable.
Islamic Jihad claimed to shoot some 120 rockets at Israel earlier this month. Other groups associated with Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah claimed about 20 more rockets. The IDF said more than 60 rockets landed in Israel.
According to GANSO, they counted 61 rockets and 14 mortars being shot during the entire two week period from March 6-19, not counting a few test rockets shot to sea. Of those 61, 23 of them fell short or exploded on the launch pad.
That is a 38% failure rate, virtually the same rate that I noted for a two-week period in January.
Even if GANSO is undercounting, the percentages are probably not too far off.
As we know, at least two rockets landed on houses during those two weeks, killing at least one and injuring several. Another rocket exploded while being built, killing 4 terrorists and a two-year old child.
And there have been many other Gazans killed by terror rockets over the years, a statistic that the media simply doesn't report.
