A Qassam rocket fired from the Gaza strip slammed into Sderot, Monday afternoon.
The rocket — the twelfth fired from Gaza toward Israel since the ceasefire began June 19 — hit just a few meters from a home that was hit in the final rocket barrage before the ceasefire.

“We’ve had a few days of quite, and today again the cease fire has been interrupted by another explosion of a Qassam rocket,” Shimon Nachmani, head of the Sderot police department, said.
Monday’s attack is the third in the last week.
A Qassam hit in an open field in Sderot on Saturday night as residents began marking the fast of Tish’a B’Av, in memory of the destruction of the two temples.
Last Thursday during a ceremony in memory of the Gush Katif settlement, the Tzeva Adom alarm sounded as a rocket was fired and exploded in the Sha’ar HaNegev region.
