Of course the Arab terrorists choose Shabbat to attack. They know that our defenses are down and we're recharging our spiritual batteries. They know that the police, hospitals and army are in "Shabbat mode." It's no great security secret. In 1973 when Egypt and Syria planned their well-coordinated attack to totally destroy us, they chose the "Shabbat of Shabbatot," the holiest day in the Jewish Calendar, Yom Kippur. Not only weren't we ready, but our politicians running the country were fanatics in the belief that after Israel's great victory in the 1967 Six Days War the Arabs would never attack us ever again.
Luckily G-d didn't desert us, and after a very painful war we were victorious.
No doubt it's G-d that directs the Arab missiles to miss homes and Jews during these Shabbat attacks and has them land in "No injuries were reported and the IDF was searching for pieces of the rocket." and "No injuries were reported and the IDF was searching for remnants of the rocket. Earlier in the evening, a rocket landed in Hof Ashkelon and caused no injuries. " That's the phrase used time after time.
Strangely, there's an additional report in the Jewish Press from the Taspit News Agency.
