14-Aug-11: More incoming rocket fire
Israel National News in the past few minutes: "The Tzeva Adom Code Red early warning alert system sounded late Saturday night as Gaza residents fired a rocket into Israel. The past month has seen a sharp increase in the number of rocket attacks. The rocket hit an open area of the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council area. There are no known injuries or damage at this time. The short range rockets are often called Qassams, named after Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, a Syrian leader who led riots against the Jewish communities in the land of Israel in the 1920s and 1930s. He also organized riots in Syria and Libya." A similar report comes from Ynet. More details when we have them.
