Kassam damages two Sderot homes


JERUSALEM (JTA) — A Kassam rocket fired from Gaza damaged two houses in Sderot.

The rocket, launched early Thursday morning, was one of two to strike southern Israel on Thursday. The second landed near Sderot’s industrial zone, causing no damage.

A woman and her son were treated for shock. The Color Red siren sounded shortly before the rockets landed. 

Israeli planes struck smuggling tunnels in Rafah on the Gaza-Egypt border later Thursday in response, according to reports.
