Five Kassam rockets were fired at the western Negev on Friday morning, landing in open areas near Sderot and Ashkelon.One of the rockets started a fire in a wheat field, destroying acres of land just ahead of the harvest, Yedioth Achronot reported.Israel, meanwhile, promised to keep up its assault against Palestinian terrorists in advance of next week’s G8 summit Berlin out of concern that it will come under pressure to end military operations. “Israel will continue to operate against Hamas’ terror,” Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Thursday night. “They will not control the situation, we will control the situation. We still haven’t exhausted most of the targets that have been approved by the security cabinet.” On Thursday night, Israel struck several buildings in the Gaza Strip, including one near the home of Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. Israel also detained about 30 Hamas leaders, including a Cabinet minister.
