Hamas aiming for Comrade Peretz's house

According to a Hebrew article on Ma'ariv's web site, Hamas is aiming Kassams at the Sderot home of Defense Minister Comrade Peretz. The article, quoting from the testimony of a senior military intelligence officer before the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, says that Hamas' ability to aim the Kassams has significantly improved.

According to the intelligence source, since Hamas renewed the shooting of Kassams most of the rockets are reaching Israeli territory, and there has been a 50% increase in the number of Kassams falling in Israel. (It's not clear to me whether to what that 50% figure relates).

Another intelligence officer who participated in the hearing said that the defense establishment knows that Hamas is trying to carry out a 'quality terror attack,' but they do not know whether it is to come from Gaza or from Judea and Samaria.
