Kassams continue to strike Negev


JERUSALEM (JTA) — A Kassam rocket fired from Gaza damaged a house on a kibbutz in the Negev.

Two other Kassam rockets fired earlier on Thursday from Gaza landed near Sderot. Those rockets landed in a thick fog, but reportedly did not cause any damage.

Following the first Thursday attack, Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered a halt to sending humanitarian aid into the Strip. On Wednesday, about 60 trucks carrying supplies were allowed to pass through Israeli crossings into Gaza, and shipments of cooking gas began entering Gaza.

One rocket fired Wednesday night from Gaza also landed in the western Negev.
