Palestinians fired at Israel from Katyusha

March 29 2006

Palestinian militants fired a 122 mm rocket Katyusha from Gaza into Israel, spokesman for the Israeli army. The rocket fell south of Ashkelon. No injuries were reported.

Israeli television reported that a rocket exploded this morning and was released by militants of Islamic Jihad. Israeli military experts, calling the attack "dramatic developments", argue that this is the first firing Katyusha rockets into Israeli territory from Gaza.

Aiming and shooting range in this class of missiles twice higher than the makeshift Qassam rockets that Palestinians regularly fire at southern Israel. Flight distance "Qassam" does not exceed 10 miles, which leaves large Israeli cities outside of their reach, according to ITAR-TASS.
