It’s a mystery, but whatever and whoever hit the plant, and it wasn’t the homemade firecracker rockets that fly out of the Gaza Strip to land in some farm field around Sederot inside “Israel”, whatever this “country” without defined borders really is geographically (it’s never been reliably determined).
