Qassam hits Negev, does damage

Rocket explodes in agricultural field, harming equipment. 'Miracle no one was hurt,' says official

A Qassam rocket hit agricultural fields in Hof Ashkelon Regional Council Friday afternoon. No injuries were reported, but damage was caused to agricultural equipment.


The alarm was sounded in the area, and residents succeeded in reaching their bunkers. Yair Farjoun, the chairman of the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, said it was a miracle no one had been hurt.


"Qassam rockets remind us all that the region is sensitive and loaded. I call on the residents to be wary and uphold safety procedures," he said in a statement.


The previous Qassam rocket had been fired Wednesday, and exploded in Eshkol Regional Council. No injuries or damage were reported.


Last Friday two rockets were fired from Gaza, one of which exploded in Sdot Negev Regional Council and the other in Palestinian territory. No injuries or damage were reported.
