Gazans fire Russian rocket



Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired a Russian-made, military-grade rocket into Israel.

The rocket landed harmlessly Sunday outside the southern Israeli town of Netivot, around seven miles from the northern Gaza boundary. Military officials said the rocket appeared to be a Russian-made Grad, which has a greater range than the homemade projectiles generally deployed by Palestinian factions.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the launch. Israel says Hamas and other Gazan terrorist groups regularly smuggle military-grade ordinance in over the border with Egypt.
