26-Aug-12: [UPDATED] Initial report - Incoming rockets in Sderot

Reports coming in over the last few minutes (it's now 9:05 am, Sunday morning) say there has been a rocket attack on the beleagured southern Israel city of Sderot, with one report saying a rocket made a hit on a building in the industrial zone. Sderot has the misfortune of being located closer to the Gaza Strip than any other Israeli city. It has population of 24,000.

UPDATE Sunday morning 10:00 am: Times of Israel now reports that there were two Qassam rockets, obviously both fired from Gaza from the burgeoning terrorist-rocket-firing industry nurtured there by the Strip's Hamas masters. They both crashed and exploded in Sderot's industrial zone, causing injuries to one man and damage to buildings.
UPDATE: An IDF Spokesman's Unit tweet [source] says there was a third rocket Sderot-bound this morning. The third one crashed into open space and did no damage though that, of course, was the opposite of the terrorists' intentions.
