font size    

A Qassam rocket launched from the Gaza Strip landed in a gas station near Southern Israeli town of Sderot on Sunday afternoon, causing damage to the station and wounding one people.

According to a spokeswoman for Israel Defense Forces (IDF), one man was moderately wounded by shrapnel, who was then taken to hospital for treatment.

Earlier on Sunday, an Israeli was seriously wounded in a shooting attack while driving near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, the armed wing of Palestine's Fatah movement, claimed responsibility for the attack, according to Israeli media.

In addition, four Qassam rockets landed in open areas in southern Israel on Sunday morning, said Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth's website. No injuries were reported in the attack.

An IDF spokesman said earlier that a total of ten Qassams were fired at Israel during the weekend.

The political leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement, or Hamas, Khaled Msahaal said this weekend that the movement would not agree to halt rocket fire at Israel in exchange for an easing of travel restrictions on the Palestinians.
