Palestinian Arab terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired another rocket at nearby Jewish towns on Friday afternoon, causing damage to a factory. The factory workers were able to reach the safety of the facility's bomb shelter in time, and there were no injuries.

In other weekend violence, a 73-year-old Israeli woman was stabbed in the head by a young Palestinian Arab man while entering a restroom at a public beach in the coastal town of Ashkelon on Saturday. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital in moderate condition. The assailant was subdued by bystanders and arrested by police.

In Gaza, four Palestinian Arabs were killed and another 30 were wounded on Friday when a grenade was hurled at the funeral procession of a terrorist killed by Israeli forces a day earlier. Hamas officials said the grenade attack was part of a clan rivalry.
