A rocket hit the town of Sderot late Tuesday and injured two teens, one is listed in critical condition. The rocket was the seventh to be fired from Islamic Jihad since Tuesday morning. In accordance, Defense Minister Amir Peretz is putting pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to respond to these attacks with a clear message:

"We cannot continue to restrain ourselves," Peretz told the prime minister. "We cannot let Islamic Jihad do whatever they want, and we need to take action to stop the Kassams."

Residents in Sderot, rightfully frustrated, had this to say:

"Our children are getting hurt over here and nobody's doing anything about this," one resident shouted.

"We can't go out anywhere, not to the shopping mall, or anywhere," another resident said.

Others vented their anger at the press members who were covering the incident. "You guys are going to interview us and maybe show a minute or two, but you don't really feel our pain," one resident accused.
