Tel Aviv : Palestinian militants fired more missiles on southern Israel Monday morning, one of which struck Sderot city as Israeli Defence Minister Amir Peretz was in his hometown casting his ballot for primaries in his coalition Labour Party.
At least three missiles landed in Sderot Monday morning, a military spokesman confirmed.
Sderot, which is located some 5km northeast of the Gaza Strip, has borne the brunt of more than 250 rockets launched from the coastal salient in the past two weeks.
Four more rockets landed in nearby kibbutzim, or agricultural communes. One Israeli was lightly injured, the military said.
Israel meanwhile pressed on with an air offensive retaliating against the rocket-fire, targeting two Hamas posts in the northern Gaza Strip before dawn Monday and another in the central Gaza town of Deir el-Balah Sunday evening.
Two Hamas militants were reported seriously injured in the first strike.
A spokesman for the ruling Palestinian movement's military wing said late Sunday after talks with President Mahmoud Abbas in Gaza City that Hamas would continue the rocket fire, unless Israel agreed to a mutual ceasefire valid both in Gaza and the West Bank.
