Palestinians Launch Rocket Attack on Israeli Day Care Center

Earlier today, Palestinians launched a Kassam rocket attack against the Israeli town of Sderot; a total of seven rockets landed in and around Sderot, one of them in the courtyard of a day care center. The Jerusalem Post reports here.
This video captures the rocket attack on the day care center:

Islamic Jihad said that the rocket attack was “a present for the start of the new school year,” so it appears that the targeting of schools and day care centers was deliberate.
Thousands of rockets have been launched at Sderot from Gaza, killing a total of 12 people over the past seven years. Earlier today Tzahi Hanegbi, Chairman of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said that “there will be no escaping the need to send the IDF deep into the Gaza Strip.”
