Monday's rocket attack on Sderot and the parents' decision to launch a strike in the southern town's high schools and launch a protest against the government were received with great satisfaction in the Gaza Strip.
"The strike in Sderot strengthens us and proves that the rocket fire yields and disrupts the Israelis' lives..." a spokesman for the al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad's military wing, which is responsible for the rocket fire, told Ynet on Monday evening.
According to the man, Abu Ahmed, "We definitely planned to increase the rocket fire when the school year opened in order to cause the world to pay attention ...."
