After four days of marching, dozens of Sderot youths arrived at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem on Thursday evening to protest the ongoing Kassam attacks that have pummeled their hometown. The group, which left Sderot on Monday, came to the capital carrying Israeli flags, torches and cardboard rockets, Army Radio reported. With shouts of: "We don't want Kassams, we want security," the protesters said they felt cheated by the cease-fire that went into effect earlier in the week. "We've already had [cease-fires]," they said. "This only strengthens terror, and then we get hit harder." Since the cease-fire began at 6 a.m. Sunday, at least 14 rockets have been fired from Gaza at the western Negev, most of which landed in or near Sderot.
