Another Qassam rocket explodes - in Gaza

The Gaza NGO Safety Office sent out an SMS message on Sunday morning:

08 Jan: Overnight Pal[estinian]. op[erative]s. attempted to fire 1 HMR [home made rocket] from Al Bureij Camp, MA [Middle Area], but the rocket exploded prematurely. No reports of injury or damage.

Just because you haven't heard about any rockets from Gaza doesn't mean they aren't still trying to fire them.

And as I have shown, as many as 30% of rockets explode on the ground or fall short in Gaza, sometimes causing injuries or even death.
