Cat and mouse games continue in Gaza, Negev

Last update - 12:40 01/11/2007    
By Mijal Grinberg, Haaretz Correspondent
The Israel Air Force on Thursday attacked two Qassam rocket launchers in the northern Gaza Strip from which Palestinian militants had unleashed a barrage of nine rockets toward the western Negev, Army Radio reported.
One of the rockets struck front yard of a home in the western Negev town and did not explode. Two other rockets landed in open fields - one outside Sderot and another near Kibbutz Nir Am. There were no injuries or damage reported.
Rockets have landed in the region on a daily basis, yet Sderot's chief security officer, Yehuda Ben Mamen, said the latest barrage prompted school principals to call and inquire as to whether classes would be in session. Ben Mamen replied that schools would be opened as per usual.  

The town unveiled on Wednesday its first armor-protected student bus station. Prior to the start of the school year, parents demanded that bus stations across the city be reinforced for protection against Qassam rocket fire.
Report: IDF troops killed armed militant in south Gaza

Israel Defense Forces troops operating in southern Gaza on Thursday opened fire on an armed militant laying near the soldiers' position. Israel Radio reported that the militant was killed by the troops' fire.
Troops also killed four armed Palestinians overnight on Thursday in northern Gaza, during clashes near the border fence.
IDF troops regularly stage raids into Gaza to try to prevent Islamic Jihad and other factions from firing rockets or mortars across the border into Israel or at border crossings.
