Two people injured as Sderot house suffers direct hit from Kassam

Two people were injured this evening as a house in Sderot suffered a direct hit from a Kassam rocket fired from the northern Gaza Strip. One of them was a 76-year old woman.

On Friday, the IAF bombed a home in the southern Gaza Strip town of Khan Younis which the IDF said was used as a weapons warehouse. The IDF said that the Palestinian owner of the home, a senior member of Hamas' military wing, received a call 15 minutes before the missile strike telling him to evacuate the building. No one was reported wounded.

Defense Minister Amir Comrade Peretz told The Jerusalem Post last week that if the current IDF operations in the Gaza Strip did not curb the Kassam attacks, he would consider ordering a large-scale and deep offensive.
"We intend to stop the Kassams at any price," Peretz said. "Hamas knows that they will pay a heavy price with every Kassam fired at Israel and if they don't stop them they know we will consider harsher and deeper operations into Gaza."
Hamas either doesn't know it or doesn't care.
