- Netanyahu: No ceasefire, no negotiations
- Lieberman: Consider severing ties with PA
The rocket hit Israel after nearly three days of quiet in the south. On Tuesday a rocket exploded in the Eshkol Regional Council.
The fragile ceasefire with Gaza's militant groups was previously breached last week, as several rockets were fired at Israel following a relatively calm morning.
The Iron Dome defense system intercepted at least one Grad rocket fired at Beersheba. Shortly afterwards, a rocket was fired at the city of Sderot. Residents of the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council reported hearing an explosion within the council's limit.
No injuries or damages were reported and security forces are canvassing the area for the projectiles.
