Israeli families dropped whatever they were doing and raced for shelter once more Wednesday, as shelling from Gaza resumed in the south.

Palestinian Authority terrorists sent mortar shells flying at a town not far from the Gaza border at around the time that children were arriving at school, and their parents arriving at work. 

The shells exploded in open areas, and did not damage any structures, officials said. No one was physically injured, although people who suffer from anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorders had symptoms triggered by the attack.

Last night, Israeli families' lives were also disrupted and children were dragged from their sleep to race for shelter when Gaza terrorists launched two rocket attacks against Israel. Two rockets slammed into areas in the Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council district shortly after 10:00 p.m. No one was physically injured, although residents were traumatized. No property damage was reported.

Parents had a 15-second window within which to pull their children from their beds and get them to safety, as Arabs fired Qassam rockets at southern Israeli towns from northern Gaza.

Earlier in the evening, two Grad Katyusha missiles were also fired at the coastal city of Ashkelon. Both of the rockets hit areas near the city, but miraculously, no one was physically injured. As in the other attacks, residents suffered anxiety and some were traumatized.
