2 Qassams explode in south, no injuries

One rocket lands near orchard belonging to kibbutz in Shaar Hanegev Regional Council

Explosions terrified communities in Shaar Hanegev Regional Council early Sunday morning as two Qassam rockets fired from Gaza exploded in the area.


No injuries or damage were reported. Residents say the rocket alert did not go off before the rockets, one of which was found near an orchard belonging to a kibbutz, landed.


Rosh Hashana and the Saturday that followed were not quiet for residents of the south. Four Qassam rockets exploded in the Negev over the weekend, and on Wednesday a mortar shell fell near a kindergarten in the area.


Nevertheless, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to attend another round of peace talks in Sharm El-Sheikh Tuesday.


Sources say Netanyahu will demand of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that as soon as an agreement is reached on the borders of two future states, his people will cease their demands for Israeli land.
