CBNNews.com  - SDEROT, Israel - As talk of extending the nearly six-month-old tadhiyeh between Israel and Hamas continue, Gaza-based Palestinian terrorists fired a Kassam rocket at the southern Israeli community of Sderot.

Children on their way to school ran for shelter when the warning siren wailed at 7:50 a.m.

"My daughter was waiting at the bus stop for her ride to school when the 'Color Red' warning system was activated," one Sderot parent told YNet news.

"I ran to the window and saw my daughter taking cover near the bus stop. There was pandemonium on the street," she said.

The rocket landed in an open area, causing no personal injuries or property damage.

No terror cell has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Since the beginning of the cease-fire on June 19, Palestinians have violated the truce by firing more than 20 Kassam rockets and 20 mortar shells on southern Israel.

In response to Thursday's attack, Defense Minister Ehud Barak again ordered border crossings closed, including the Kerem Shalom and Karni crossings and the Nahal Oz fuel depot.

On Monday, IDF troops manning the Kerem Shalom crossing discovered a shipment of military uniforms hidden in a truck transporting humanitarian supplies to Gaza residents.

The truck had already passed inspection with the Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration, which would have allowed the uniforms to reach Palestinian terror groups, had its contents not been rechecked at the Kerem Shalom crossing.

Despite the cease-fire, Hamas continues advanced military training of its forces.
