A Grad rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists in north Gaza on Saturday landed in an open area outside the city of Beersheba in south Israel. Residents reported hearing explosions, but there were no reports of injury or damage.

 

Two more rockets fired toward the western Negev region landed in open areas as well.

At around 11:30 am a siren was heard in Beersheba and the Bnei Shimon Regional Council, while the "Color Red" alert system was activated in a number of Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip.

 

Beersheba's mayor stressed that the southern city did not suffer a direct hit.

 

Omer resident Hagar Shalev told Ynet she was at the parking lot of a large hardware store when its employees were ordered to enter secure rooms. "I stood there with other shoppers; we didn't know what to do, and they locked the (store's) doors on us.

 

"Then we heard a loud boom. I wasn't frightened. We remained calm," she said.

 

Tamar, who also lives in Omer, said "the children were a bit scared, but they are used to sirens. We entered the kitchen and waited till we heard the explosions. We won’t let this ruin our Shabbat."

 

On Friday, a rocket launched from Gaza landed south of Ashkelon. There were no reports of injury or damage in that attack either. A Qassam rocket also landed in the Negev's Eshkol Regional Council, without causing injuries or damage.
