Sderot hit by kassam for first time since late Feb

In a nice bit of timing, YNet published an op-ed by Jacob Shrybman, "Rockets Have Not Stopped" on Monday, 5/17. Just two days later, I found myself on the UJC @JewishEvents twitter feed posting an item saying "First kassam to hit home in Sderot since late Feb; several treated for shock. JPost article:"

Here's an excerpt from the YNet essay, which can be read in full here.

A few days ago I was relaxing in my first-floor apartment in Sderot when there was a loud knock on my door. The government contractor tasked with building private bomb shelters attached to each unit in the building came to check my apartment. All across the city, private bomb shelters are popping up like spring flowers and are being utilized as the Color Red alarms continue to sound.
