Daily rocket fire does more than "disrupt"

Daily rocket fire disrupts life in Israeli towns, villages near Gaza

JERUSALEM: A rocket fired by Palestinian militants in Gaza exploded next to a day-care center in the Israeli town of Sderot on Monday.

Traffic disrupts life; a cell phone ringing in a meeting disrupts the meeting; a flat tire disrupts life. Daily rocket fire does more than "disrupt" life.

Perhaps the editor who penned this headline should move to Sderot to understand what really happens when rockets rain on the place where one and one's family live, work and attend school. Me thinks the editor would have a whole different perspective as well as a different verb.

Also what happened to the rest of the rockets that were fired and landed in Sderot? Don't they count as well?
