The title is misleading.

Israel is launching its airstrike to destroy the Palestinian Fajr rockets of which 150 have been fired into Southen Israel over the past five days, killing three Israelis in their apartment, forcing schools to shut down, and Israeli civilians to take to bomb shelters. The airstrikes' purpose is to avoid a ground invasion. If the Fajr rockets are not destroyed, the more powerful, Iranian-made rockets could reach Tel-Aviv, resulting in even more loss of life, resulting in an Israeli ground invasion which would mean the deaths of thousands of Palestinians.
