6 Qassams land in Negev; no injuries reported

Islamic Jihad says attacks part of group's decision to 'aim weapons only at Israel'

Palestinians in north Gaza fired six Qassam rockets toward the western Negev on Monday. No injuries were reported.


The al-Quds Brigades, Islamic Jihad's military wing, claimed responsibility for the attacks. "The barrage was part of our decision to point our weapons only toward Israel," the group said in a statement.


Two rockets landed near the Erez Crossing, another hit the Yad-Mordechai Junction area, while a fourth landed in close proximity to a kibbutz in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council.


Security forces were still searching for the landing sites of two additional Qassams.


Two fires broke out as a result of the rocket fire – one near an avocado grove and another near Nativ Ha'asarah.


Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal, who resumed office after taking a leave of absence due the police investigation against him, told Ynet, "I do not see a change in our situation. We're maintaining a certain level of alertness even if during a period of relative calm."
