#1 Located in schoolyards, hospitals etc. The goal is to goad Israel into a counterbattery hit that will kill a few dozen innocents on camera.

#2 Not really, if all they wanted was a photo-op, they could just put a piece of muffler pipe on a tripod and watch the bombs fall on it.
This is an installation, at quite a bit of expense, to launch their crappy missiles, without the people doing the launching getting dead.
The encouraging thing is that the launchy people are trying hard not to be dead. To wreak their plans don't bomb these things, invade, cordon off these fixed sites, and shoot all the people attached to them. Thus wreaking their plans again.

The photo-op is an important part of the scenario, but you also need to actual launch missiles, no matter how ineffective, to prove your Brave Lion of Islam credentials.
The launchy guys are willing to die, just not today. Dead civilian make better prime time news footage than actual fighters.

#5 Steven I suspect the entire damn thing is a Paleo photoOp. I don't have the stomach for a g-image search of Paleo + writhing.
The Joooosies don't allow no writhing, they either kill 'em or treat 'em.

1. The IDF just sent seventy trucks carrying food and medicine into Gaza, despite being at war.
2. Gazans are being allowed into Israel for medical treatment.
3. Egypt sent in 400 activists to express solidarity with the poor Gazans. That they will become both hungry and wounded, and therefore use up the Gazans supplies of food and medicines is of no concern to any of the parties involved.

#7 Israel needs to stop sending stuff to Gaza. Shut the border and keep Gazans out of Israeli hospitals. They need to make a clean break and let Gazans reap the rewards for harboring terrorists.
