28-Aug-11: Another unquiet Sabbath

Tonight, around 10 pm [Ynet], a little after the end of the Sabbath, another Gazan Qassam rocket was fired into southern Israel's Sha'ar HaNegev region seeking Israeli targets: people, homes, cars, anything. Fortunately, it crashed to earth in an open field with no reports of damage or injury. (This benign outcome was not the intention of the terrorists, of course.)

The previous night (Friday), two Qassam rockets were fired in the same general direction at around the same time, 10 pm [Ynet]. These also exploded in open areas with no injuries or damage reported.

And a little before that, also on Friday night, a more-destructive Grad rocket exploded near Ashkelon. Again, thankfully, no injuries are so far reported.

As for the previous day, Thursday, a total of 11 Gazan rockets (Ynet's count) exploded across southern Israel, landing in open spaces adjacent to Ashkelon, Sderot, and in the territory of several of the neighboring regional councils.
