The Hamas war against Israel claims victim

Workers survey the damage after a rocket fired by Palestinian militants in Gaza landed in a factory in the southern Israeli town of Sderot February 27, 2008. A Palestinian rocket attack from the Gaza Strip killed one person in Israel on Wednesday, the Zaka emergency service said. Crude rockets fired from the Hamas-controlled territory rarely cause fatalities in Israel and the death seemed likely to increase pressure on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to order stronger military action in the Gaza Strip.

A total of 22 Kassam rockets were fired by Palestinian terrorists from Gaza on Wednesday afternoon, hitting a Sderot factory cafeteria shortly after some 100 workers had left the room. Another rocket caused severe damage to a residential building in the city's Neveh Eshkol neighborhood.
