Sderot, Israel - Wednesday February 27, 2008. At least one person was killed, several were wounded and many were treated for shock Wednesday as least 40 Qassam rockets slammed into the western Negev town of Sderot and surrounding communities. The 47-year-old man called Roni Ichyea was apparently in a car, parked next to Sapir College on the outskirts of Sderot, which was hit by a Qassam. He suffered lethal shrapnel wounds to the chest. The rocket barrage occurred hours after an Israel Air Force strike killed five Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip who were apparently planning a large scale terrorist attack against Israel after having been trained in Iran and Syria. Palestinian officials said two more people, including a civilian, were killed in a second IAF airstrike carried out immediately after the Qassam attack against Sderot.
