10-Jan-11: Three rockets fired into Israel tonight

There have been three more rocket attacks on southern Israel tonight (Monday night). The rockets emanated, as the hundreds of others before them, from Hamas-controlled Gaza. Ynet says is reporting that they crashed into an undisclosed (for reasons of basic security) location in the area of Ashkelon, a major coastal city, with one of them landing some 660 feet from "one of the facilities" in the southern city's industrial zone. Fortunately there are no reports of injuries to people, but this - from the jihadists' standpoint - is a matter of potluck. If they can hit innocent people, that's a bonus in their eyes and a highly prized outcome. This is why the world calls them terrorists.

UPDATE Tuesday morning: A fourth incoming rocket is reported by Ynet during the night. The Qassam  crashed into the Eshkol region in the western Negev of southern Israel. Fortunately no injuries are reported.
