From PCHR:
In the past five days, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) documented the injuries of eight persons, including two children and three women, due to the explosions of home-made rockets in populated areas across the Gaza Strip. The injury of one of the women was described as serious.

The latest incident took place at approximately 01:40 on Monday, 22 August 2011, when a home-made rocket landed onto the roof of a 3-storey house belonging to Sobhi Ibrahim Shakhsa, 53, where three families live, in al-Tawaheen area in al-Shuja'ya neighborhood in the east of Gaza City. As the result of the rocket's explosion, three sons of Shakhsa were shocked and were transported to Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. Besides, the rocket made a hole in the roof, falling part of the southern wall of the house and damaging the water network and doors. In his testimony to a PCHR field worker, Shakhsa said that the Explosives Police arrived at the scene and collected the rocket's shrapnel, but the civil police did not come to investigate the incident.

Earlier, at approximately 20:00 on Sunday, 21 August 2011, another home-made rocket hit the western side of the house of Mas'oud Ibrahim al-Sheikh, 53, near Dar al-Arqam School in al-Toffah neighborhood, east of Gaza City. As a result, his son Ra'ed Mas'oud al-Sheikh, 8, was moderately wounded by shrapnel to the head, and his daughter Samar Mas'oud al-Sheikh, 28, was seriously wounded by shrapnel to the pelvis and back, and consequently, was admitted into the intensive care unit at Shifa Hospital.

At approximately 20:45 on Saturday, 20 August 2011, Sa'd Bakr al-Salhi, 16, from Deir al-Balah town in the central Gaza Strip and Naheda Hashem Salem, 53, were evacuated to Shifa Hospital, as the former was wounded by shrapnel to the right hand and the latter was wounded by shrapnel throughout the body. Medical sources described their wounds between light to moderate. The two persons were wounded due to the explosion of a home-made rocket while exiting from Sa'eed Murad Mosque near al-Helou Hall, southeast of Jabalya in the northern Gaza Strip.

At approximately 03:00 on Friday, 19 August 2011, Mohammed Yusef al-Najjar Hospital in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah received Abdul Sattar Selmi Abu Snaima, 21, from al-Shouka village, east of Rafah, as he was wounded by shrapnel throughout the body. Medical sources described his wound as moderate. According to Palestinian police sources, Abu Snaima had been wounded when a home-made rocket landed in front of his house, which is located near al-Shouka clinic.

Interestingly, PCHR does not mention the death of the 13 year old boy who the UN said was killed by a Grad rocket. Perhaps because the Grads are not "home-made."
