Palestinian gunmen fired two Qassam rockets towards the western Negev. One of the rockets landed on Palestinian territory near the border fence, while the other is believed to have hit the Eshkol Regional Council.
There have been no reports of injuries or damage so far. Fourteen rockets and several mortar shells have been fired at Sderot, Ashkelon and the Gaza vicinity communities since the morning hours. (Shmulik Hadad)
