* Prime Minister Sharon's Shikmim Farm in the Negev was almost hit by a Kassam rocket three weeks ago. Security forces found the remains of the rocket about 250 meters south of the Sharon family residence yesterday morning. The assumption is that the rocket was fired three weeks ago during a massive Palestinian rocket attack on Sderot and environs, in which five people were injured. Arutz-7's Haggai Huberman says that security forces told him this was not the first time a rocket was fired towards Sharon's farm.



* Second Lt. Ariel Bodah, 21, of Tel Aviv, who suffered critical wounds in a terrorist shooting attack nine months ago, died of his wounds yesterday. The attack occurred in January of this year near Migdalim, between Shechem and the Jordan Valley. It claimed the life of Yoseph Atiyah, and two other soldiers were wounded. The four soldiers who were hit were dressed in civilian clothing, on their way to the pre-military Torah academy in nearby Maaleh Ephraim. They had graduated from it several months before and planned to spend a reunion Sabbath there. Bodah will be buried on Monday morning at 11 AM in the Kiryat Sha'ul Military Cemetery.



* IDF forces arrested several wanted terrorists over the night. One pair, including a terrorist who was involved in several shooting attacks, was taken south of Shechem in the Shomron. One of the arrested gunmen was carrying two magazines. The same IDF force also sighted and arrested a rifle-armed terrorist on a roof. Dozens of shooting attacks have taken place against Israeli targets in this area over the past several weeks.



* Police arrested two Israeli-Arab minors who were caught red-handed throwing rocks at cars on Highway 6 west of northern Shomron.



* It was released for publication that joint IDF-Shabak (General Security Service) activity last week in the Southern Hebron Hills areas led to the arrest of wanted Hamas terrorist Haitam Batat. Batat was a member of a terror cell involved in several attacks in which four Israelis were murdered. He was nearly arrested two weeks ago, but managed to escape, and was hiding out in an abandoned house in Dahariya, near Hevron. Four other Hamas terrorists were apprehended as well.
