Newsreel of Missiles at Israeli Civilians, in... 1969
Here's a section from a newsreel of August 1969, including a short report about Katyusha rockets shot at Kiryat Shemona. One woman was injured and property damaged. Richard Nixon was president at the time. The Beatles were (just barely) still recording songs together. Humanity was all agog about Apollo 11's trip to the moon. Angelina Jolie's birth was still six years in the future. Queen Elisabeth was on the throne. And Palestinians were shooting rockets at Israeli civilians.
