A Sderot resident sustained light injuries from shrapnel when one of the rockets hit his apartment building. A second rocket fired at the southern city landed on a street, in close proximity to another apartment building. One person was treated for shock.
The remaining Qassams landed in open areas south of Ashkelon, in the Zikim and Yad Mordechai areas. Two additional Qassam rockets launched in the early morning hours landed in open areas.

A few hours after the rocket attacks Israeli aircraft bombed a Hamas security forces post in Gaza’s Sheik Raduan neighborhood. According to Palestinian sources the post was destroyed, but no injuries were reported.
Later Palestinian sources reported of another Israeli attack on a Hamas post in the Jabalya refugee camp in Gaza. At least two people were injured in the attack, they said.
According to the sources, the post that was attacked is located near the home of Hamas Special Forces commander, Abu Obaid al-Jarrah.
At around 11:30 pm Palestinian sources in Gaza said the Israeli Air Force attacked a position of Hamas’ special security forces in Rafah. No injuries were reported.
