Hamas closes in on Intel plant

Kiryat Gat now a target
Insurgents working for Hamas have fired rockets on Kiryat Gat, home to a huge Intel factory.

No one was injured, and the Israeli defence force retaliated with an aerial strike. One of the missiles exploded at a cattle barn outside of the city.

Kiryat Gat is halfway between Be’er Sheva, the capital of the Negev, and Rehovot, the southern edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv. Hamas left Kiryat Gat alone since Israel’s counterterrorist Operation Cast Lead campaign two and a half years ago.

Another rocket exploded between Ashkelon and Kiryat Gat. Hamas has increased the number of its rocket attacks in the past month, attacking Israel with four times the number of missiles than it did in June.

However managing to hit a high profile target like the huge Intel plant might get the insurgents some attention. Fortunately they have not sorted out that targeting problem yet.
