Kassam Rockets at Sderot; No One Hurt (INN-ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS) 05/20/05)Source: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/news.php3?id=82339 INN} ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS INN} ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
Two Kassam rockets have been fired at the Negev city of Sderot since yesterday, one last night and one around noon today.

In addition, two mortar shells were fired from Gaza at areas near Sderot. No one was hurt in these attacks.

Only hours before the first Kassam, MK Uri Ariel (National Union), a new resident of Kfar Darom, said, "The nation had better wake up fast, because this nightmare [of rockets at] Gush Katif will soon be the lot of Ashkelon (pictured above) and the communities around Gaza... It could be that Arik Sharon knows what will happen after the disengagement, but prefers to lie to the people."

The Chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee said that in light of the bombardment of Gush Katif since yesterday, the IDF must execute a major offensive against the terrorist infrastructures. The Chairman, MK Yuval Shteinitz of the Likud, said that the disengagement cannot occur before the offensive is carried out.

"We have to ensure that defenseless citizens are not attacked," Shteinitz said, "and the bombardment of yesterday and today shows that this is currently impossible." (IsraelNationalNews © 05/20/05)
