A rocket was fired on Friday night from the Gaza Strip, striking a kindergarten in Sderot. The building was damaged, but no persons were physically wounded. One person suffered a panic attack, requiring treatment.
At 10:59pm, a Code Red rocket alert was sounded in Sderot and in several communities located within the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. Residents ran for cover in protected shelters.
The alert in the south came at the end of a difficult day of terrorism. In the morning, a stabbing attempt took place in Hebron. In the afternoon, a drive-by shooting attack in south Har Hevron killed Michael "Miki" Mark, 48, who was travelling in his car with his wife, the seriously wounded Chava, and two of their children, Tehila, 13, and Pedayah, 15), who were wounded moderately-to-seriously and lightly, respectively. The manhunt after the shooter or shooters continues.
