Katyusha rocket hits Netivot

A Katyusha rocket fired by 'Palestinian' terrorists hit Netivot this morning. Fortunately, no one was injured. Netivot is approximately eleven kilometers from Gaza, and is therefore not considered 'adjacent to Gaza' by the brilliant Israeli government.
A Katyusha rocket fired from the northern Gaza Strip landed several meters from a residential area in Netivot on Sunday morning, Army Radio reported.

The rocket, one of four to land in the western Negev, was the first to land in the Netivot area since Palestinian terrorists starting firing rockets at Israel.

No one was wounded and no damage was reported as a result of the rocket barrage.

Netivot Mayor Yehiel Zohar said that his request to fortify the town's education institutions was turned down since Netivot is located 11 kilometers from the Gaza Strip - one kilometer outside the area which qualifies for fortification.

Zohar told Israel Radio that he would not activate the Red Dawn early warning system because he did not want to disrupt the daily routine of the town's residents.


Also Sunday morning, one of eight mortar shells fired from Gaza hit a house in Kibbutz Kerem Shalom. No one was wounded.

Kibbutz secretary Ilan Regev said the shell hit an empty studio causing a fire and damaging the building.

Regev said that dozens of mortars had hit the kibbutz recently but that this was the first time a house had been hit. He added there were fortified rooms in the kibbutz but no warning system against mortar shells.

The Popular Resistance Committees claimed responsibility for the mortar barrage.
The rocket was a Grad-type Katyusha with a 20-kilometer range.

But Olmert wants to give the 'Palestinians' Judea and Samaria so that the rest of the country can cower in fear too.
