From U.S. Credits Israel with "Great Restraint" in the Face of Attacks:

Israel has shown "great restraint" in responding to repeated Palestinian rocket attacks against Israeli targets, the State Department said Thursday.

McCormack said the cross-border violence started with attacks on Israel from Palestinian territory.
