How much more absurd can this conflict get?

A rocket fired from Gaza strikes infrastructure in Israel that provides electricity to the coastal strip, cutting power to 70,000 Palestinians.
Israel has not shut off power to Gaza, says Channel 2, but will not risk the safety of Israel Electric Corporation personnel to repair the damage caused by this shell. Still, overall electricity supply to Gaza will not be significantly affected by the strike.
In the meantime, reporting of the foreign media has become truly insane.   Poor Palestinians, the CNN reporter Diana Magnay comments,  they suffer since they do not have the Iron Dome, but the Israelis are protected!     
Could a Martian listening to this comment deduce that the Palestinians are the ones indiscriminately lobbing rockets into Israel’s cities?
