Eight home-made Qassam shells hit the Israeli Negev town of Sderot on Saturday fired by the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas.  Four shells were fired in the morning, one of which landed in the yard of a house in Sderot, but caused no injuries.

In the afternoon, Hamas fighters fired four other Qassams at Sderot three of which landed in open areas, while the fourth landed in a cemetery causing little damage, but no injuries.

Israeli soldiers raided towns across the West Bank early Saturday, arresting 26 Palestinians accused of being militants.

The 5-month-old cease-fire agreement reached in Sharm Al-Sheik is about to deteriorate especially after the Israeli military establishment’s decision to resume the assassination.

Israeli Air Force aircrafts targeted and killed eight Palestinians on Friday, seven of which believed to be Hamas activists.

On the other hand, at least 50 of the home-made Qassam shells hit Israeli settlements in Gaza Strip and the western Negev town of Sderot and the surroundings, according to Israeli sources.  One 22-year-old Israeli woman was killed in a moshav in the Negev.

Attempts by the Palestinian Authority to prevent the Qassam firing resulted in fierce clashes between the PA security forces and the Hamas activists, in which 2 were killed and over 20 were injured in the Gaza Strip.
