14-Aug-11: More incoming rocket fire

From 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.
