Rockets continue to fall on Gaza-vicinity communities. A Qassam rocket exploded near a kibbutz north of the Gaza Strip Thursday evening, shortly after two mortar shells exploded south of a kibbutz in Shaar Hanegev Regional Council.
A total of eight mortar shells and one rocket were fired at Israel on Thursday, causing no injury or damage.
Around 5:30 pm three mortar shells were fired and fell on the Palestinian side of the border fence, not far from Erez crossing. Four hours earlier three mortar shells exploded in open areas in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.
Attacks from Gaza have increased in recent days, luckily, without causing any damage or injures.
Nine days ago, after a week-and-a-half of relative calm, fire on the western Negev from Gaza resumed, when a Qassamexploded in an open area in Eshkol Regional Council. There were no reports of damage or injury in the incident.
Last month the Israel Air Force responded to a salvo of rockets by striking several targets in the Gaza Strip. The Palestinians reported that three Islamic Jihad and Popular Resistance Committees were killed.
In addition, an empty house in Khan Younis in the central Strip was damaged. No injuries were reported.
