3 mortar shells land in Eshkol; no injuries

Attacks on southern Israel continue Wednesday as mortars fired from Gaza Strip hit in Negev region, causing no injuries or damage

While reports in Egypt continue to focus on progress in talks towards a ceasefire, fire continues to fall on southern Israel.


Two mortar shells fired from northern Gaza Wednesday evening landed in Eshkol Regional Council limits. No injuries or damage were reported.


Earlier, another mortar launched toward the same region landed in an open area. There were no reports of injuries or damage in that attack either.


Tuesday night, half an hour before polling stations closed, a Qassam rocket was fired at the western Negev.


The rocket exploded in an open area between the Sha'ar Hanegev and Sdot Negev regional councils. No one was injured and no damage was caused.


Sunday morning another rocket was fired on Israel, and exploded in a parking lot in a kibbutz in Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. No one was injured, but a number of cars were damaged and caught fire.


A few hours after Sunday's rocket the Israel Air Force struck Hamas structures in the northern and southern Gaza Strip.


It was reported that 22-year-old Khaled Kafarna of the Islamic Jihad was critically injured in the attack and died of his wounds several hours later in hospital.
