An air raid siren was sounded on Wednesday night and one rocket exploded in the region. There were no reports of injuries or damages.


Residents told Ynet that at around half past midnight, at the height of an Independence Day party, a siren sounded. Some of the residents said that they also heard an explosion.


The rocket was most likely fired from the Gaza Strip and exploded in an open area within the regional council.


On Sunday, it was reported that a Qassam rocket exploded in an open area in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. No Color Red alert was sounded, but no one was injured and there were no reports of damages.
