Parents were pulling children out of school in Sderot Monday morning, after six Kassam rockets were fired at the town. Two of the rockets landed inside Sderot and damaged a building and a road. "Buses are already on the way to pick up students who haven't been taken home already," Batya Katar, head of the Sderot Parents Association, told AP by telephone, as voices of panicked parents were audible in the background. The government promised to move students out of the city if there was an escalation in Palestinian rocket fire, she said.
