The residents of Sderot and Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council had a rude awakening in the middle of the night, as a Color Red alert sounded just after 2 am.
Shortly afterwards an explosion rocked the area. It was later confirmed that a Qassam rocket fired from northern Gaza landed in an open area just outside Sderot city limits.
Residents reported seeing mass security forces movement at the direction of the presumed landing site. No injuries or damage were reported.
Rocket fire from northern Gaza renewed just as the Washington peace summit was getting underway, as did terror attacks against Israelis in the West Bank.
