Four Qassam rockets, fired from northern Gaza, landed in Sderot Friday – three in open areas and one near a private residence in the city. The Islamic Jihad's al-Quds Brigades claimed responsibility for the shooting.


The Color Red alert was sounded in the city shortly after the commencement of the Shabbat. One woman, nine-months pregnant, suffered shock and was treated by Magen David Adom emergency services on site. The house's windows were shattered.
