Qassam lands near strategic facility in Ashkelon

Qassam lands near strategic facility in Ashkelon
Rocket fired from northern Gaza falls in town's industrial zone; no injuries
or damage reported

A Qassam rocket fired from the northern Gaza Strip landed Monday afternoon near a strategic facility in the Ashkelon industrial zone. No injuries or damage were reported.

The al-Quds Brigades, Islamic Jihad's military wing, claimed responsibility for the attack.

An Islamic Jihad source told Ynet, "The fire is part of operation 'Red Rose,' in the course of which we plan to launch hundreds of rockets, most of them improved Quds-3 type, in response to the Israeli violations of the calm in Gaza, and the continued arrests and assassinations in the West Bank."

Shortly before noon, a rocket landed near a kibbutz in the western Negev. There were no injuries or damage.

Three rockets were fired from Gaza Sunday. One landed in an open field outside the town of Sderot, and the two others fell in open areas in the northern Negev. No injuries or damage were reported in any of the incidents.

The al-Quds Brigades said they were behind the attacks.

In light of the escalation in Qassam attacks on Ashkelon, Finance Minister Abraham Hirchson pledged Sunday that a fortified emergency room will be built at the local Barzilay Hospital.
