Palestinians from the Islamic terrorist group Hamas in Gaza fired several rockets at the Israeli town of Sderot in the Negev. One rocket hit an apartment building, but miraculously, no one was hurt. Sderot residents demonstrated, demanding that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon invest more in improving security for the town, instead of spending all Israel’s resources on the planned pullout from the Gaza Strip. Hamas said the attack was revenge for a visit by Jews to the Temple Mount on Jerusalem Day yesterday, as Israel was celebrating the reunification of the city during the Six Day War in 1967.
