4 Qassams land near Sderot
Relative quiet shattered on Saturday evening as four Palestinians rockets land in Israel, one near horse ranch just outside Sderot. Two children suffering from shock evacuated to hospital

Rocket alert sirens blasted through Sderot on Saturday evening after Palestinians launched four Qassam rockets from the Gaza Strip towards Israel.


Two children suffering from shock and ear pain were evacuated to the Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon.

One of the rockets reportedly landed near a horse ranch on the city outskirts. The other Qassams landed in open areas in the western Negev. No damage was reported.


Palestinian terror groups have all but ceased the rocket attacks this past week. On Thursday two rockets were fired, landing near Ashkelon and Sderot. No injuries or damage were reported.


Last week the Israeli consulate in New York released 4,200 red balloons Thursday, equal to the number of Qassam rockets fired at Sderot since the Gaza disengagement, outside the United Nations headquarters in the city. The display aimed to protest the international community's disregard for Qassam fire at Israel.


The protest was held while the Security Council convened to discuss the situation in the Gaza Strip.
