Israeli wounded by Palestinian rocket

Tuesday, August 28, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

An Israeli man was wounded when a Palestinian rocket slammed into a residential neighborhood in the southern Israel town of Sderot Tuesday morning.

Several other people were treated for shock following the attack, including members of the family whose home was hit by the rocket.

Palestinian terrorists operating out of nearby Gaza have fired thousands of rockets at Sderot over the past few years.

Despite the danger, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is insisting that the residents of Sderot go about their lives as normal, while refusing to fortify public buildings and schools in the town for fear that doing so would not speak well of the government's decision to pull out of Gaza in 2005.
