A few seconds later, a Qassam rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists from the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave exploded in an agricultural field located within the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. There were no reports of injuries or damage.


The siren was also heard in the Netivot area.


The last rocket attack from Gaza took place a week ago, when a Qassam landed in an open area in the Ashkelon Beach Regional Council. In response, IDF aircraft attacked a tunnel in the northern Strip.


Israel's southern region also came under fire on the eve of Independence Day. There were no reports of injury or damage in that attack either.
