A Qassam rocket struck two factories in Sderot Sunday morning. No injuries were reported, although the factories were damaged.

At approximately 9 A.M., a color red rocket alert was sounded in the area. Explosions were heard a short time later. One of the rockets was found near a factory that was hit by a rocket two months ago. The second rocket has yet to be located.

Mortar rounds were also shot along with the rockets.

The attack comes two months after Gaza militants fired four Qassam rockets at southern Israel, two of which exploded in open areas near the southern Israeli city of Sderot. The other two exploded in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council.

A 28-year-old woman injured her ankle while seeking shelter following the sound of the alarm and was evacuated to Barzilay Medical Center in Ashkelon.
