While, fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt, once civilian was treated for shock.

The projectile sent shrapnel flying into a Netivot home, and pierced the walls, including in a child’s bedroom.

Over 40 rockets were fired into southern Israel by Palestinian terrorists during the past week alone.

The Guardian’s Israel page contains no mention of the latest round of attacks from Gaza.
