From Ynetnews:

"No remission of rockets in the southern front: Within one hour on Sunday five Qassam rockets landed in Sderot and Ashkelon. Overall eight Qassam rockets landed in Sderot and Ashkelon. One of the rockets landed near a strategic facility in Ashkelon, miraculously failing to hit the structure.

Gaza Strip is on left edge, Ashkelon on right: "strategic facilities"
(national power station, fuel pipeline, oil storage farms), in between.

"Two other rockets landed in open fields in Kibbutz Karmiya and Moshav Mavki'im. Later Sderot was hit by three Qassams, one

landing in a babies' clinic, which caused some people to suffer anxiety."

Geez! Ya' freakin' s'pose?!


On Sunday morning two Qassam rockets landed in Sderot, one landed in a school and other [sic] in near [a] synagogue.

(Note to Ynet newsdesk team: either translate or edit - not both. I understand you're wiped from the war coverage workload - me too, but still... ed.)

Sderot residents are following closely the escalation in the north and ask repeatedly not to forget that fighting for Sderot has also claimed lives.

"We know that the fighting in the north is very difficult and our hearts go out for them, but also here the Qassams continue and it's only a miracle that no one was hurt," said a resident of Zikim.

Don't you forget that. Don't I remember:

"Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal talks about what the constant barrage of Kassam rockets has done to his town, its residents, and demands that the government take action."

Read it all.
