Three Gaza rockets hit open areas in Sha'ar HaNegev
No one was hurt and no damage was caused in evening rocket fire; damage caused to road in Hof Ashkelon in Saturday morning rocket fire.

Three rockets exploded onto open areas in the Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council on Saturday night. No one was hurt and no damage was caused.

 

 

The first rocket hit at around 8:40 pm, while the other two fell about three hours later.

 

A rocket hit a road in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council on Saturday morning. No one was hurt in that incident either, but damage was caused to the road.

 

Since the beginning of Operation Brother's Keeper in the West Bank to find the three abducted Israeli teens, over 20 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel.

 

Cities and towns in southern Israel prepared for such a contingency following the kidnapping.

 

Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni said during the week that "for now, we're giving the IDF all the time it needs to strike them (Hamas) and bring the boys back home safe and sound."

 

Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi added that the residents of his city "have a lot of experience (with rocket fire) and remain strong facing challenges. They're willing to to pay the price of escalation."
