What’s a few numbers between friends?

All the numbers, whether of killed or wounded, of ordnance rained down, or of access to the media, favour Israel. How to create the semblance of symmetry, apart from hyping those Palestinian rockets? How to create the illusion of an ‘existential threat’ to Israelis? Why, when the number of Israeli casualties are minimalnumbers potentially affected by those infamous Palestinian rockets compared to those of the Palestinians across the border in Gaza, you can always bang on about the of Israelis.

Middle East Reality Check examines the claims of the Israelis and mainstream media in relation to the number of Israelis citizens potentially affected by rockets and raises some interesting questions.
