This post uses a combination of several different data sets. The base maps used in this example were collected at Doc Savage's website who is a Archeologist that works in the region. In the first image you can see the political boundaries of Israel, Gaza, and West Bank, which are our regions of interest. I compiled and collected data on the types of rockets and the various ranges associated with each one.

I am interested in the rockets fired into Israel from Gaza. In our analysis we need to look at two aspects of the rockets fired into israel. First, we need to look at the type of rocket and its range. There is a nice overview of the rockets, called Qassam/Kassam rockets, on Wikipedia which describes how they are made and used. Based on the information on Wikipedia it appears that the rockets range from 3km to 10km in maximum range. The image below shows the areas in Israel at risk of being attacked by rockets.
