The Blood Libel

1st shell hit the harbour wall. It's been hit before so I assume its on a prerecorded grid. Gunner appears to have adjusted to hit survivors

But a few short hours later, we read:

Beaumont, who has been in Gaza for the last nine days, said that during the time he has been at the hotel, that area of the harbor has been hit by the IDF "at least three times." 

This person replied

Hans de Vreij ‏@hdevreij  15h@petersbeaumont Projectile trajectories are influenced by a *lot* of variables, such as wind direction, air temperature and -pressure@petersbeaumont 15h Your presumption that a 'gunner' made some adjustments "to hit survivors" is pretty simplistic...

And Beaumont is a journalist upon whom you depend for factual, balanced reporting.
