A Qassam rocket fired by Palestinian terror groups from Gaza landed on the roof of a residential home in Sderot on Wednesday evening. No injuries were reported but damage was caused to an apartment.
Four people were treated by emergency services for shock, including a 50 year-old who complained of chest pains.
The rocket crashed into the top-floor apartment of the three-storey building, home to an elderly couple who luckily escaped injury but were treated for shock at the scene.
The Qassam landed in the town just as Teacher's Association chairman Ran Erez was addressing a rally organized by student and teacher organizations as well as various charity groups. The demonstration, held under the banner of 'Enough with the apathy – we're coming to Sderot,' was opened with the lighting of a special Hanukkah menorah made of Qassam shells.
