By the Rocket’s Red Glare?

They threw a couple more rockets at us yesterday. One was an air burst over the palace (I wasn’t there at the time, but I wish that I could have seen it) and one went over the base to the far wall. As usual, no one was hurt.

I am not aware that air bursting is a regular tactic of the Muj, so I tend to believe the damn thing just blew up in flight. We are lucky that rockets are fairly inaccurate by nature, and I don’t really think the average Muj is all that well-trained. Actually setting a fuse is probably beyond them.

This has become so routine that I don’t even look outside to look any more when I hear the explosions. Well, so long as it’s not close enough to knock anything off of my shelves, that is.
