The Weekend In Sderot: Terrorists Launch 50 Kassam Rockets at Negev Town
At the right, school children in the Israeli town of Sderot participate in a "duck and cover" drill to prepare for Kassam rocket attacks. Their preparation is timely. As reported here in The Jerusalem Post, this past weekend, Palestinian terrorists launched more than 50 rockets from Bet Hanun in Gaza at the Israeli town in the Western Negev desert; on Sunday alone at least 26 rockets rained down on the town. The toll: one man critically wounded, two more persons lightly wounded, the entire town psychologically wounded.
Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal grimly reported the situation to Prime Minister Olmert with these words:
"You have to choose. If you do not destroy Beit Hanun, Sderot will become a ghost town. The people of this city cannot suffer any more Kassam attacks. It's impossible to live here now."
