Qassam rocket hits Eshkol Regional council

Rocket explodes in open territory in western Negev; no injuries or damage reported

A Qassam rocket exploded in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council on Saturday. No injuries or damage were reported.


This is the third rocket fired at Israel over the weekend. Palestinians fired two rockets at Israeli territory early Saturday morning. One exploded in the Eshkol Regional Council and caused severe damage one house and moderate damage to another. There were no reports of injuries. The other rocket landed in an open area.


Southern Command chief Major-General Tal Russo visited the house that was severely hit by the Qassam Saturday and advised Palestinian terror organizations to "come to their senses."


Following the recent escalation in rocket and mortar fire from the Gaza Strip into Israel, Maj. Gen. Russo noted that "there is anarchy inside the organizations in Gaza and also within Hamas. There is no control over there," he said.
