Sirens and Grad Rockets Again in Southern Israel

After a quiet spell,   the air raid sirens sounded again Wednesday night in several towns and cities in Southern Israel.  People rushed to safe areas and shelters in order to take cover.  They only have a few minutes.  A Beduin woman was moderately injured by shrapnel from a Grad  rocket on Monday.  

The Grad rocket exploded in Lachish, Kiryat Gat within Ashkelon's boundaries and damaged a road.  This is a longer ranged rocket and implies an escalation of this type. 

Israel's answer came hours later with the air force retaliating by bombing targets in Gaza.
