Israel performs the "Roof Knocking" tactic before destroying target during IAF air strike (Gaza)

(July 12th, 2014) This is a recent video showing the Israeli Air Force performing a "roof knocking" on a building in Gaza, a widely debated tactic since Operation Protective Edge began. Designed to warn innocent civilians (and the terrorists too) to run like hell. Rare to catch on video.

The first two hits are non explosives, meant to serve as a warning, followed up by the main missile at the 1 minute mark. In my opinion, it allows too many Hamas terrorists to get away. It also shows the extremities Israel has gone to, to avoid civilian casualties.
