Pictures released by the IDF Spokesperson's Office showed two underground
Kassam rocket silos, a meter in diameter and two meters deep. The launchers,
the army said, were big enough to hold a Kassam or Grad-model Katyusha
rocket that could be launched by remote control.
About 20 Qassam rockets and mortar shells hit the western Negev on Thursday, February 7, mostly near Sderot according to Israel TV Channel 1 news. Jerusalem post notes that one of the rockets hit a garage adjacent to a house in Sderot, causing a fire and sending three people into shock.
