Breaking: Three more Kassams hit Negev; UPDATE 4 Kassams, 8 mortar shells, 2 wounded

Israel Radio is reporting that three more Kassams hit the Eshkol district in the western Negev this morning. All fell in open areas.

As you may recall, our inept, corrupt government promised that it 'will know how to react' to rocket fire or weapons smuggling.

UPDATE 8:38 AM

Here are more details.
Gaza terrorists breached the cease-fire once again early Sunday morning, firing three Kassam rockets, one of which landed between two kindergartens in the Eshkol region.

Another rocket hit an open area in the Sdot Negev region, while the other has not yet been located.

No one was wounded and no damage was reported in the barrage, and the warning siren was sounded before the rockets landed.

Seven rockets have been fired at southern Israel since both Israel and Hamas declared cease-fires some two weeks ago at the end of Operation Cast Lead.

UPDATE 6:19 PM

The count for the day is now up to four Kassams, eight mortar shells and two people wounded.
Two people were lightly wounded by shrapnel on Sunday evening when four mortar shells fired from the Gaza Strip landed near a kibbutz in the Sha'ar Hanegev region of the western Negev.

The latest ceasefire violation was one of many for the day. Earlier, IDF soldiers patrolling the Gaza border near the Kissufim crossing came under fire, and before that four Kassams and a number of mortar shells were fired at the South from the Strip.

Troops returned fire into Gaza, and no casualties or damage were reported in the attack.

One of the Kassam rockets landed between two kindergartens in the Eshkol region. Two others hit open areas nearby and a fourth hit the Sdot Negev region.

At the same time, four mortar shells also landed next to a western Negev neighborhood.

No one was wounded and no damage was reported in the morning barrage, and the warning siren was sounded before the rockets landed.

Shortly after the incidents, Fatah's military wing, the Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, took responsibility for one of the rocket attacks.
I know, I know, they're really 'good terrorists,' but they're trying to convince Hamas they're on their side.

The politicians are boasting of reacting to Hamas attacks. Where is Israel's response to the repeated ceasefire violations?

Hopenchange, Israeli-style!
