Qassam hits Sderot house; 2 women suffer from anxiety

Palestinians fire two Qassam rockets at Sderot, one hits house, other rocket still not found. Jihad's al-Quds Brigades claim responsibility

Two Qassam rockets fired from northern Gaza Thursday landed in Sderot, bringing the total number of rockets fired on the city and the Negev area since the morning hours to eight.


One of the rockets hit a house; two women suffered from anxiety. The injured were treated on site by Magen David Adom emergency services. IDF forces are trying to locate the second rocket's landing site.


Al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad's military wing claimed responsibility.


The house hit belongs to Meir Timsit. Family members, who heard the Color Red, were in the secure room when the rocket smashed through the living room's ceiling, and were not harmed.


On Wednesday, the Sderot Parents Association announced it will not open the city's school year on time, in protest of the High Court's decision to postpone its ruling on their petition, demanding the immediate fortification of all of the city's schools.


State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss, who was asked to weigh in on the fortification of Sderot and the Gaza vicinity communities told Ynet he was concerned.


"The government must take wider action. We must do everything we can to spare human lives."
