3 hurt in Sderot attacks


A woman and two children were injured during Palestinian rocket attacks on Sderot.

Terrorists fired five Kassams at southern Israel on Monday, three of which hit residential areas in Sderot.

A 10-year-old boy suffered a moderate wound to his shoulder when a rocket struck an underground shelter. A mother and her year-old baby were lightly wounded.

Government spokesman David Baker, responding to the attacks, said “Israel will actively pursue those who strike at our children and will take whatever steps necessary to bring these lethal rocket attacks to an end.”

A senior Hamas official said Monday it would stop firing Kassam rockets at the western Negev if Israel halts all military operations against the Palestinians.

Three Hamas members were killed and at least four others wounded early Monday in two separate Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip.
