3 Qassams fired at Israel

Rocket hits Sderot residential neighborhood Sunday night; two other Qassams land near town Monday morning

Palestinian gunmen fired a Qassam rocket from northern Gaza at Israel Sunday night. The rocket landed in a residential area in Sderot, causing damage to several buildings. Four people were treated for shock.


Two other rockets were launched at the town Monday morning, at 7:45 a.m., and landed in open fields outside Sderot. No injuries were reported in the attack.


Two Qassam rockets were fired at the southern part of the western Negev and landed in open fields on Sunday, causing no injuries or damage.


The Israel Defense Forces on Sunday morning killed a 15-year-old Palestinian who was standing near Qassam rocket launchers in the northern Gaza Strip.


Soldiers fired at him shortly after a rocket was launched from the area at the Nativ Haasara community in southern Israel, without causing any damage.


Palestinian sources in the Gaza Strip reported that the boy killed in the Beit Lahiya area was Abdullah Abu Namus. According to the sources, he had nothing to do with the Qassam fire.


Several schoolchildren were also injured in the incidents, one of them sustaining moderate to serious wounds.


Military officials claimed that they hit "a terrorist standing near launchers." Army sources said that the soldiers hit a figure spotted near the launchers, in an area from where a rocket was launched at Israel.
