Kassams fired again from Gaza


JERUSALEM (JTA) — At least four Kassam rockets and 15 mortar rounds were fired from the Gaza Strip at the western Negev.

Islamic Jihad’s al-Quds Brigade claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s attacks, which caused no injuries, according to Ynet.

One mortar attack damaged an Israeli power cable being used to transfer electricity to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, which Palestinian leaders claim has been suffering from energy shortages since Israel closed its crossings with Gaza early last month.

The attacks further weaken the possibility that the Egyptian-brokered truce between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas will continue.
