JERUSALEM, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Several rockets fired by Palestinian militants landed on southern Israel early on Thursday, but no casualties were caused, local media reported.
No casualties were reported, but an Israeli woman was treated for shock after two rockets landed at the entrance to Kibbutz Gevim in Israel's western Negev desert. Some houses were damaged in the attack.
Another rocket hit an industrial zone south of the Israeli city of Ashkelon, damaging a building belonging to a high-tech factory. No casualties were reported in this incident either.
On Wednesday, a rocket rammed into a house in the Israeli border city of Sderot and exploded in the bedroom of a 17-year-old student who had left for school moments earlier.
In response to the continuous Palestinian rocket firings, the Israeli army targeted a structure used for manufacturing and storage of rockets in Gaza, which was operated by the Palestinian leftist Popular Resistance Committees, the army said in a statement.
The army also targeted several access routes to Palestinian militant rocket launching sites in the northern Gaza Strip in a bid to halt repeated rocket firings.
Meanwhile, Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal warned on Wednesday in Jerusalem that if the government did not take action, Sderot residents would move out of the dangerous place and that the city might become a ghost town.
Moyal also asked Israeli President Moshe Katsav on Wednesday evening to intercede with the government to guarantee the city's security. Enditem
