A Palestinian Kassam rocket aimed at Israel veered off course and struck a home in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday, moderately wounding a 2-year-old Palestinian boy who was sleeping in his bedroom, hospital officials said. In Thursday's incident, Palestinian terrorists fired two rockets toward Israel from the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanun, a frequent launching ground. One of the crude projectiles misfired and struck a nearby house, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. The rocket blew through the home's living room and exploded in a bedroom where three children were sleeping. Two-year-old Samir al-Masri suffered a broken leg and shrapnel wounds, said his uncle, Jad al-Masri. Shrapnel lightly wounded the two other children, he said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the rocket attack.
