One person was lightly wounded by shrapnel when a Kassam rocket hit an installation near Ashkelon Wednesday morning. The wounded man was taken to Ashkelon's Barzilai hospital for treatment. This was the second injury from a Kassam since Sunday afternoon, when a woman was moderately wounded by a Kassam rocket that landed near Sderot. Earlier Wednesday morning, a Kassam was fired from Gaza at a town in the western Negev. No one was wounded in the attack, and no damage was caused, the army said.
