The small Negev city of Sderot - the target of choice for murderous Arab rocket-launchers in Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of the Gaza Strip - was fired on six more times this morning. Two of the Kassam rockets landed in populated areas, wounding an elderly woman and a girl. The two were transported to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon, where they are reported in light condition and suffering from shrapnel injuries and shock.


In the most significant terrorist attempt since Gideon Lichterman's murder earlier this week, PA elements blew up a car bomb outside Kfar Darom in Gaza last night near an IDF tank. Miraculously, no one was hurt and no damage was caused - though the terrorist inside the car was killed. Gunshots were fired at the nearby soldiers only seconds before the car approached, apparently as a distraction so that the car could advance as far as possible and cause more casualties. A search of the area afterwards turned up 80-100 kilograms of explosives, designed to increase the murderous effect of the explosion. Among the weapons and explosives were two Claymore mines, which were to eject many metal pieces in various directions, and several mortar shells and bombs.

More attempted murders by PA terrorists against Israelis last night:
Arabs fired at soldiers near Yitzhar in central Shomron last night… A jeep was fired on near Ateret further south… Even further south, past Hevron, Palestinian terrorists fired at a car near Otniel; unlike in the attack on Lichterman's car three days ago, and unlike dozens of others in the past two and a half years, no one was hurt in these incidents…

A three-year-old girl was lightly wounded this morning by Arab rock-throwers who attacked her and her friends playing in the Beit Hadassah neighborhood of Hevron... Border Guard policemen were attacked in Tul Karem this morning, using rifles, firebombs, and rocks... Two mortar shells were fired at Gush Katif towns - one near Netzer Hazani, and one near an IDF army base. No one was hurt and no damage was caused…
