As a barrage of Kassams hit Sderot Wednesday morning with deadly results, the High Court gave the state two weeks to explain why schools in Sderot and along the Gaza border would not receive additional protection in the near future. During a discussion of petitions submitted by educational institutions on the subject, Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch leveled sharp criticism at the state.
