A Qassam rocket fired by Palestinians in northern Gaza Tuesday landed near a strategic installation near Ashkelon's southern industrial zone. Three more rockets landed near the western Negev city of Sderot.


No injuries or damage were reported in the attack.


Around 8 am Tueday morning, the "Color Red" alert system was activated in the Sderot area, and three loud explosions were heard in the city shortly thereafter. A half-hour later another rocket was fired toward Ashkelon.


The Al-Quds Brigades, Islamic Jihad's military wing, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was carried out in response to the killing of two of the group's members by IDF forces in the West Bank town of Jenin.


On Monday 10 Qassams were fired toward the western Negev region, causing no injuries or damage.
