Qassam falls in Negev
Residents of Eshkol Regional Council hear loud blast after Color Red siren sounds. No reports of injury or damage

A Qassam rocket fell in an open area in Eshkol Regional Council Tuesday afternoon. There were no reports of injury or damage.


Around 3 pm, a Color Red siren sounded, and shortly afterwards, residents heard a loud blast. 


Terror organizations in Gaza have claimed a step up in their attempt to harm Israel, and on Monday police dismantled two explosive devices hidden in barrels, which had washed up on the southern beaches.


On Monday a senior member in one of the Palestinian organizations confirmed that the two explosive devices, each weighing about 80 kg, were meant to be used in a future terror attack on an oil rig in the south.
