A Qassam rocket fired from the northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning hit a chicken coop in one of the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council communities, causing heavy damage. There were no reports of injuries.

 

Earlier Tuesday, a rocket landed in an open area within the regional council, two other rockets hit an open area near the southern town of Sderot and one landed near a factory in the city. There were no reports of injuries or damage in all incidents.

Ofer Beider, who owns the chicken coop hit by the rocket, told Ynet that he was at the place only minutes before the attack. "Large parts of the structure were destroyed, at exactly the same spot where the workers were sitting only a short time earlier," he described.

 

"The damage to both the structure and the electricity infrastructure is substantial. It's a disgrace we find ourselves having to… constantly suffer these attacks. If only we knew that this was taking place parallel to an extensive military operation in Gaza, this might have comforted us a little," he added.

At least 10 people suffered shock after a Qassam rocket hit Sderot Monday evening. One woman sustained mild injuries while attempting to take cover.

 

The rocket landed in a local yard, causing some damage to a nearby building.

 

The Popular Resistance Committees and Islamic Jihad's military wing, the al-Quds Brigades, claimed responsibility for the Qassam fire.

 

About half-an-hour later, seven rockets landed in open fields in the western Negev area. No injuries or damage were reported.

  

Also Tuesday, Givati Brigade fighters killed an armed Palestinian who opened fire at them Tuesday morning, near the Kissufim crossing in the central Gaza Strip.

 

The force fired back at the terrorist, attacked and killed him. A Kalashnikov rifle and a vest were found on his body.
