20 Israelis Wounded in Palestinian Rocket Barrages Tuesday

From 20 Israelis Wounded in Palestinian Rocket Barrages Tuesday:

More than 20 Kassam rockets fired by Palestinians in Gaza landed in the Sderot area Tuesday, in one of the most severe attacks on the town. One rocket directly hit a house, wounding a 45-year-old woman and her son. At least seven more rockets struck Israel on Wednesday morning. Schools will remain closed in Sderot and the western Negev following the escalation in rocket fire from Gaza.
