Israeli killed by Kassam rocket in Sderot

An Israeli was killed today when a Kassam rocket struck Sapir College in Sderot. The Kassam was one of nearly thirty that was shot at Sderot and other towns in the western Negev today.
One Israeli was killed and two others wounded by shrapnel after a Kassam rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit the grounds of Sapir College in the western Negev.

Several other people were reported in shock. Army Radio reported that everyone present on the college campus was being shepherded into sheltered areas.

The rocket that struck the college's parking lot was one of a barrage of six fired late Wednesday afternoon, two of which landed in Sderot. One rocket hit and caused severe damage to a residential building in the city's Neveh Eshkol neighborhood. No one was wounded.

A total of 16 Kassam rockets were launched at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip Wednesday afternoon.

Barely an hour earlier, a barrage of 11 rockets slammed into the western Negev town, sending four people into shock. One hit a factory cafeteria, shortly after some 100 workers had left the room. The building sustained serious damage.
The 'factory' was a poultry processing plant (Oaf Tov - Good Birds).

But Israel can't invade Gaza this week. Valdemert is busy in Japan.

Meanwhile, doctors have succeeded in saving the arm of ten-year old Yossi Haimov, who was hit by a Kassam on Monday, but he will need reconstructive surgery on his shoulder and many other surgeries.


Israel Radio has just reported that the person killed at Sapir College was a thirty-year old man who was killed by a direct hit on his car.

The murder of a Jew is something now accepted as "normal" in Israel. Just like the weather.
