Qassam rocket lands in western Negev

Despite truce, Palestinians continue to launch Qassams into Israel. Rocket hits open area within Eshkol Regional Council; no injuries or damage reported

A Qassam rocket was fired Sunday afternoon from the northern Gaza Strip, landing in an open area within the Eshkol Regional Council in the western Negev.


There were no reports of injuries or damage.


Despite the ceasefire declared between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, Palestinians have fired several rockets or mortar shells into the Jewish state over the past few weeks.


Another rocket hit the western Negev on Friday afternoon. It landed within the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council without causing any injuries or damage.


Last Monday, a rocket landed in an open area near a kindergarten in the city of Sderot. Two days earlier, a rocket hit an open area in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. There were no injuries or damage in both incidents.
