Sderot residents continue strike over Kassams

In the wake of the recent barrage of Kassam rockets launched from the Gaza Strip on Sderot, fifteen residents of the city continued their hunger strike outside the home of Defense Minister Amir Peretz on Tuesday, demanding that he put a stop to the persistent attacks. Members of Sderot's education establishment also continued to strike in protest of the threat on their children's safety. Six Kassam rockets were launched, from the northern Gaza Strip towards Israel since Monday night. All six rockets landed in Palestinian territory.
