From October-70 Rockets and Mortars Rain Into Southern Israel From Gaza
Nadene Goldfoot
Two more long range Qassam rockets were fired into Southern Israel aimed at Kibbutz Sha'ar Hanegev in the Western Negev region  and destroyed a farm building near the kindergarten classroom. The kindergarten was also severely damaged.  Luckily it had already closed for the day, and the children remained safe. 

This was the 4th time that Israel's Ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, had to write to Ban Ki-Moon, the Secretary council about saying something like condemning Hamas about doing this.  Israel is enduring shrapnel hits in their homes, school and playground and fire in their streets. 

Such information never gets into our Oregonian, so I imagine it doesn't make the news into other papers as well, and Americans are not aware of these continual attacks.  Israel answered today with their air force and that will probably get into papers.  Israel has promised that they will retaliate everytime they are hit by these terrorists.  The IAF hit a tunnel in the terrorist center in N. Gaza.
