More rockets hit south; Islamic Jihad claims responsibility

Four Qassams fired at Israel Friday afternoon; two land near Gaza's Erez crossing. Two more rockets fired from Gaza Friday night

More rockets hit south: Palestinians fired four Qassam rockets from the Gaza Strip at Israel Friday afternoon. All the rockets reportedly landed in open areas: Two fell in the Shaar Hanegev regional council area and two others landed near Gaza's Erez crossing.


No injuries were reported in the rocket barrage.


Friday night, two more rockets were fired from Gaza. The Qassams landed near the border fence causing no injuries or damages. 


The "Red Color" anti-rocket alert system was first activated around 5:30 pm Friday, prompting area residents to take cover.


Shortly after the attack, the Islamic Jihad's al-Quds Brigades claimed responsibility for the rocket fire.


Rocket attacks have continued to target southern residents on a daily basis; five Qassams were fired at the Negev Thursday, with one landing near a kibbutz synagogue. Fortunately, the rocket failed to explode and only caused light damage to the synagogue's wall.
