The launch site was in such close proximity that the area was immediately lit up by the launching.

Speaking in Arabic, the reporter informs her audience about the civilian casualties and even mentions the dangers posed to journalists before the very area she was reporting was thrust into the war-zone.


The extensive use of civilian areas and infrastructure has posed a continuing challenge to the IDF, which must respond to enemy fire from these areas.
