Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal announced he was planning to resign after the current situation calms down.
Moyal made the announcement during a meeting of mayors and regional council leaders from the North who came to show solidarity with Sderot on Thursday afternoon.
Moyal has increasingly voiced frustration with the government's treatment of the beleaguered western Negev city, which he has led since 1996.
The chainsmoking mayor told The Jerusalem Post that he has been working
around the clock, and even lost five kilos during the last week.
Earlier Thursday, three Kassams were fired at Sderot, but landed in open fields and caused no casualties. A car sustained damages when the fourth rocket landed, around 1 p.m.
