Benny, a resident of Shaar Hanegev, recounted, "During the Holocaust Day ceremony the siren sounded. All those in the club entered the security room and after several blasts were heard from afar, we resumed the ceremony."


He further added, "We're used to these disruptions. Luckily it ended the way it did. Right now we are not going to see exactly where the rocket landed or what damage it caused to our fields."


Last Wednesday, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza fired two Qassam rockets toward the western Negev, as Israeli children in Sderot and Sha'ar Hanegev were making their way to schools and kindergartens after the Passover holiday. No injuries or damage were reported.


On Tuesday night, the IDF initiated a strike in Gaza for the first time since the conclusion of Operation of Defense.


Palestinian media reported Tuesday night that the Israeli Air Force carried out a strike against two targets in the Gaza Strip, one on the eastern side of the city and the other in the northern Gaza Strip. The Safa Palestinian news agency reported that Israel bombed a factory in the al-Shugaya neighborhood.
