Building Damaged in Sderot Rocket Attack, IDF Strikes Gaza Again
Kassam rocket fire continued to rain down on southern Israel Thursday morning, as at least six rockets fired by Gaza Arab terrorists hit areas within Israel. Two of the rockets fired Thursday morning were deflected by Iron Dome missiles. The others fell in open areas. No injuries or damage were reported.
Overnight Thursday, several other rockets hit Israel, with one causing damage to a building in Sderot. No one was injured in that attack, and electricity was cut off to several buildings in the area. The Red Alert warning system sounded several times during the early hours of Thursday morning.
In response to the rocket attacks, IDF forces struck early Thursday in Gaza. Gaza sources reported several injuries in the IDF strike.
The security cabinet met again Wednesday night to discuss the current security situation. The cabinet has yet to announce any decisions about the situation in Gaza or the fierce rioting in Jerusalem Wednesday in the wake of the discovery of the body of an Arab teen earlier Wednesday.
