Rocket explodes near Sderot; none injured
Color Red alert sounds moments before Qassam fired from Gaza Strip lands in open area in western Negev

A Qassam rocket exploded in an open area in the western Negev, near Sderot on Sunday. There were no reports of injures or damage.


The rocket fell after a Color Red alert was sounded in the surrounding areas.


The last rocket attack from the Gaza Strip came Wednesday, when a Qassam rocket exploded near the border fence in an agricultural field belonging to one of the kibbutzim of Shaar Hanegev Regional Council.


A day earlier, another rocket was fired, and this time landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council. Following the attack, IAF jets struck a number of targets in the southern Gaza Strip.


The Palestinians reported that Israeli aircraft fired three missiles at the tunnel area near the Gaza-Egypt border and three additional missiles at the old airport in Dahaniyeh.


The IDF said the targets hit were a "terror tunnel" and an arms smuggling tunnel. Three Palestinians were injured.
