Palestinian terrorists in Gaza continued to launch barrages of Kassam rockets and mortar shells at Southern Israel, even as the Israeli government hinted that it would soon launch a large-scale Israel Defense Forces action in Gaza. A barrage of 9mortar shells, launched at kibbutzim in the Western Negev, near the beleaguered town of Sderot, struck moments after the funeral of Amnon Rosenberg at Kibbutz Nir Oz. Rosenberg had been killed by a mortar attack on Thursday. Four Kassam rockets struck near Sderot's Sapir College, in the town itself and in the surrounding area. The hit near the college destroyed 6 cars, but no one was injured.
