A Kassam rocket launched from the northern Gaza Strip fell inside a western Negev kibbutz late Friday night, security officials said. The crude missile struck a home, causing damage to the structure, but its inhabitans were unharmed. Nine rockets had been fired launched by Palestinian terrorists since Friday morning, Army Radio reported. One missile landed near Sderot, while another five hit the western Negev. No one was wounded and no damage was reported. Two rockets landed inside Palestinian Authority territories. IDF troops reported that they did not identify the launching sites. The rocket fire came as Israel decided not to release Palestinian security prisoners for the Muslim holiday of Id al-Adha until kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit was freed.
