Gaza missile hits busy Israeli supermarket

Sunday, May 04, 2008 |  by Staff Writer

A missile fired by Gaza-based Palestinian terrorists scored a direct hit on a supermarket in the hard-hit southern Israel town of Sderot during the middle of the day on Sunday. Miraculously, the missile failed to penetrate the store's ceiling, preventing any physical injuries, though five people were treated for severe shock.

Three more rockets fired from Gaza slammed into Sderot on Sunday, one damaging a private home, another hitting the town's industrial zone and a third landing in the local cemetery, demolishing eight gravestones.

A fifth rocket landed just outside a nearby kibbutz.

Palestinian forces also fired a mortar shell at the Nahal Oz fuel terminal from where the world demands that Israel increase fuel supplies to the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

In other violence, Palestinian assailants attacked a Jewish motorist with firebombs near the Judean town of Bethlehem late Saturday night. There were no injuries in the attack.
