Palestinian terrorists in Gaza on Monday violated a truce agreement with Israel, firing a Kassam rocket at the western Negev town of Sderot. Noam Bedein of the Sderot Media Center told The Jerusalem Post that there were no wounded in the attack and no damage. Bedein added, however, that the projectile landed right next to a home that was hit in the final rocket attack launched from the Strip before the truce went into effect in late June. The incident continues a pattern of sporadic cross-border shelling and rocket launches since the cease-fire was declared. On Saturday, a rocket fired from northern Gaza landed in the Sha'ar Hanegev regional council, causing no injuries or damage. Yaakov Lappin contributed to this report
