Israelis living near the border with Gaza say fear of rockets fired from the besieged area have hardened their attitude towards the Palestinians living there.

Residents of Kibbutz Kitzim have gathered on hilltops on the edge of the village to watch Israeli bombing raids in Gaza.

"If they shoot one Qassam [rocket], we have to show them who the psycho is in the neighbourhood," said one resident.

Al Jazeera's Nick Schifrin reports from Kibbutz Kitzim.
