Baba Sali's grave hit

A Grad missile landed at the entrance to Netivot on Sunday morning as Palestinian terrorists continued to attack the western Negev. The missile landed near the gravesite of rabbi and kabbalist, Rabbi Yisrael Abuhatzeira, also known as the Baba Sali. No one was wounded and no damage was reported in the attack, which marked the northern-most point to be hit by a rocket fired from Gaza. Posters around Netivot prior to the 2005 Disengagement warned residents that a Gaza withdrawal would lead to their homes being shelled.
