After a relatively quiet weekend, the Red Dawn alert systems were once again heard in the southern Negev town of Sderot as a Qassam rocket hit a school, smashing windows.

Sderot residents have been holding a hunger strike in front of Defense Minister Amir Peretz’s home, pleading with him to send ground forces into the Gaza Strip to put an end to the misery in their town.
