A Palestinian Grad rocket exploded between two residential buildings in Netivot Friday night, prompting the air strike against Gaza. The town's second attack in a week caused damage. Three shock victims were hospitalized. Turning to the government, the Netivot mayor said his town would not be a “second Sderot.” A short time earlier, he took the Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota around the neighborhood. The visitor said he was studying the situation and aspired to take part in the Middle East peace process.
