A Qassam rocket landed in a western Negev high school Wednesday morning, near the school's music classroom. Another rocket landed in an open field near Kibbutz Nir Am. No injuries were reported in both incidents.
The rocket that landed in the school shattered several windows. Head of the Sha'ar Hanegev regional council Alon Shuster, who arrived at the place, said that despite the attack classes will be held as usual in the fortified classrooms.
"Fortunately there were no students at the place at the time of the attack. We are trying to go on with our daily routine in this abnormal situation. We demand of the government to speed up the fortification of the schools and education facilities, and stop all these legal discussions over long-term fortification," Shuster said.
Shuster was referring to reports that despite a High Court ruling, the government said it would not be able to complete the schools' fortification within the required time period allotted.
"The threats of terror and Qassam fire are enough. The government… must stand by its promises," he said.
