The IDF fired artillery shells in the direction of missile launch sites in the northern Gaza strip Monday evening, following the launch of a Kassam rocket into the western Negev earlier that day. The rocket was fired from the town of Beit Hanun and landed on a road west of Sderot. Very light damage was caused but no one was wounded. The IDF's warning systems detected the rocket and subsequently initiated the "Red Dawn" plan, according to which the Sderot community was to raise its level of emergency alert, Army Radio reported.
