Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists in Gaza aimed at southern Israel Monday night, launching a rocket attack at the town of Sderot.

The short-range Qassam missile landed in an area about a kilometer away from Israel´s security fence along the Gaza border.

The explosion occurred in an open area, and no property damage was reported by the authorities. No one was physically injured.

Residents received a 15-second warning of the impending attack due to the Color Red incoming rocket alert system.

However, residents living in areas targeted by rocket attacks are frequently traumatized. Children have their sleep disrupted and are often frightened when they are snatched up from their beds by parents in order to run to a bomb shelter or other space space. In addition, those affected by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to prior attacks are typically re-traumatized as a result. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 04/30/12)
