Qassam Hits Empty House in Sderot

March 4, 2008

A Qassam hit an empty house in Sderot early this morning, destroying the house almost completely. Thankfully, the homeowners were away on a visit in Givatayim (near Tel Aviv).

Additionally, around 10 am, two Qassams were launched into Southern Israel and two mortal shells landed near the border fence. In all incidents there were no injuries.

Apparently, the couple’s children had been trying to convince the couple to leave Sderot for years. Last night their son was finally able to convince them to leave.
