More Qassams fall on Sderot

A sixth Qassam rocket fell on Sderot on Thursday, fired from the Gaza Strip and landing in an open field, wounding three. One rocket fell causing the roof of a factory to collapse. While one man sustained shrapnel wounds, two others were being treated for shock. Five Knesset (parliament) members were visiting the southern Negev town to show their support for the residents on a hunger strike when the rockets began falling. They were unharmed. One Knesset member told Israel Army Radio, “The voices heard here are horrible. People are saying ‘we want to escape this place, it’s no longer just settlements; it’s not only outside the Green Line anymore – it’s Israel’.”
