Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip on Monday fired a barrage of 30 Qassam and Katyusha rockets at southern Israel, after a night of relative calm.
One of the rockets, fired mid-afternoon, exploded in a kindergarten in Ashdod. The playground was empty at the time of the attack, and no casualties were reported.
No doubt shelling an Israeli kindergarten is justified because these children could very grow up to join the IDF one day which is in keeping with Hamas PR efforts.
And the only reason no deaths were reported is the strange Israeli habit of not using their children as martyrs for the Elders; consequently, the Israeli government has issued closure notices for all schools within rocket range while Operation Cast Lead continues.
