Three Kassam rockets fired toward Sderot

Wednesday, August 03, 2005 | 
Three Kassam rockets fired toward Sderot late last evening during the anti-pullout rally missed their mark. Two landed in the Palestinian village of Beit Lahiya and one in an open field. No Israelis were harmed, but a misfired rocket killed a three-year-old Palestinian boy and wounded five children, four of whom belong to Hisham Abdel Razek, a former PA cabinet minister and senior member of Fatah, the military wing of the PA. A few moments prior to launching the Kassams, an anti-tank rocket was fired at travelers en route to Netzarim. There were no injuries. Two terrorist organizations claimed responsibility for the attack on the vehicles: Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The Israeli army is searching the area for terrorists.
