No Rest For Ashkelon's Hospital

How would you feel if a Qassam rocket landed in your backyard? That's what happened near Ashkelon, Portland's sister city yesterday. It caused the woman to go into shock and she had to be treated at the hospital. Nine rockets hit Sderot, which is a little closer to the Gaza strip where the terrorists shoot rockets. It caused building damage, but no one was killed. That's probably because they have a one minute warning and are becoming more proficient in getting to the shelters quickly.

The Rafah Refugee Camp if home to many terrorists. A Hamas commander was in his car and Israel's forces were able to pinpoint his car and hit it. He had been involved in the kidnapping of the IDF soldier, Gilad Shalit, who has never been returned.

The ongoing war caused a 62 year old man to be killed and three militants were wounded in Gaza.
