Qassam lands in Negev; none injured
Rocket explodes in open area in Shaar Hanegev Regional Council after Color Red siren sounds

A Qassam rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip Wednesday and landed in an open area between two communities in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council.

 

A Color Red siren sounded before the rocket landed. There were no reports of damage or injury.

 

The last time residents of the area were forced to take cover was last Friday, when a siren sounded in the Sdot Negev and Shaar Hanegev regional councils.

 

A Qassam rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip and exploded in an open area, but the landing site was not located. There were no reports of damage or injury.

 

Friday's rocket came hours after an IDF force shot dead 18-year-old Muhammad Wadi from Gaza. The force spotted a group of youths nearing the border fence it suspected of trying to plant an explosive device.

 

Hamas claims that the youths were hunting birds, and not involved in any terror activity.

 

The previous Sunday, another rocket was fired at Israel. The rocket was launched at around 11:45 pm local time, and exploded in an open area west of Sderot. There were no reports of damage or injury.
