3 more rockets fired at Israel

Two rockets land in Zikim area; no injuries reported in latest strike

Three Qassam rockets were fired at Israel early Wednesday evening from the Gaza Strip, security sources confirmed.


Two of the rockets landed in the Zikim area. No injuries or damages were reported. The third rocket fell short of reaching Israel and landed in the northern Gaza Strip.


Overall, 13 Qassams were fired at Israel since Friday.


On Tuesday, an IDF system to detect Qassam fire and alert Sderot residents detected two rockets fired at Israel. The "Red Dawn" system also detected a rocket Monday evening. All Qassams landed in the western Negev causing no injuries or damage.


On Sunday two Qassams were fired at Israel, with one landing in southern Ashkelon and the other in open fields near Sderot. The IDF responded by unleashing a barrage of artillery rounds at fields in northern Gaza used by Palestinians to launch Qassams.


On Friday evening, four Qassam rockets landed near the Zikim and Yad Mordechai kibbutzim. No one was injured in the attack.


The latest wave of Qassam attacks started Friday morning with Palestinians firing two rockets at Israel. A bystander was treated for shock after one of the rockets landed within a distance of him. The second rocket was not found.
