Video shows IDF 'knock on the roof' warning

A video posted on YouTube highlights Israel's "knock on the roof" procedure using a non-lethal explosive device, which warns residents to evacuate the building before it is targeted. The building targeted here belongs to head of Hamas's arsenal of rockets, Ayman Siam, who the Israeli Defense Forces claim was killed in a separate airstrike while he was driving in southern Gaza.

Meanwhile, Israelis are afforded no such warning by Hamas terrorists who indiscriminately fire rockets into Israeli civilian areas. The video below of a rocket hitting a gas station in Ashdod shows Israelis being at the random mercy of these rockets. 

According to Israel Radio, three people were hurt in the Ashdod rocket strike, which also ignited a massive fire.
