Sderot home sustains direct hit from Kassam rocket; casualties unknown

Two Kassam rockets fell in Sderot Wednesday afternoon, one of them scoring a direct hit on a private residence. Rescue forces were on their way to the scene and there were still no reports as to whether or not there were any casualties. Barely an hour earlier, a barrage of 11 rockets slammed into the western Negev town, sending four people into shock and inflicting serious damage on a factory.
