5 Qassams land in western Negev

Barrage of Qassams launched towards Israel; Islamic Jihad claim responsibility

Five Qassam rockets were launched from the northern Gaza Strip towards Israel early Sunday morning.


Four of the rockets landed in open fields, and the fifth landed close to Sapir Academic College near Sderot. One of campus’ buildings, which was under construction, sustained damaged by the attack, however no injuries were reported.


The al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad’s military wing, claimed responsibility for the rocket attack.


On Friday, IDF soldiers from the Givati Brigade uncovered seven Qassam launchers in the northern Gaza Strip during a military operation.


Some of the launchers were installed with a timer in order to launch the rockets without human intervention.
