CBNNews.com - SDEROT, Israel - During the three-week-long Operation Cast Lead, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip fired 849 rockets, Grad missiles and mortar shells on southern Israeli communities.
Four Israelis were killed, eight critically wounded, nine moderately wounded, and 51 lightly wounded in the attacks.
Between December 27 and January 18, Magen David Adom (national rescue service) paramedics treated 295 people for shock.
While adhering to instructions from the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) Home Front Command contributed enormously to the low casualty rate, many Israelis believe their protection came from above.
