2 rockets hit building near Nahal Oz

Qassams fired from northern Gaza cause damage to Israeli building; no injuries reported

Two Qassam rockets hit an Israeli building near Kibbutz Nahal Oz in southern Israel on Wednesday night. There were no reports of injuries.


Three rockets were fired from the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday evening. Two landed within the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council, and the third rocket landed on Palestinian territory.


There were no reports of injuries, despite the fact that the Color Red alert system was not activated for an unknown reason.


Home Front Command Chief Brigadier-General Yair Golan said Tuesday that a decrease in the number of Qassam rockets fired from Gaza at Israel had been registered in 2007, compared to the previous year.


According to data presented by Golan during a meeting of the Knesset's State Control Committee, 1,488 rockets landed in Sderot and the Gaza vicinity communities in 2006, compared to 1,150 in 2007. 


Home Front officials told Ynet that some 400 rockets have been fired at the area surrounding Gaza since the beginning of 2008.
