The sub-head for this story is: "Attack comes after Palestinian militants fire a Qassam rocket at open field in western Negev" Sorry, but the terrorists were not firing a Qassam AT an open field. They were firing it at Sderot. Fortunately, it hit an open field. As to the remarks by Abu Saed, considering the currents in the area, the barrel that reached Ashdod was certainly launched prior to the death of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. Notwithstanding the fact that Hamas itself now says Israel had nothing to do with it.
