No injuries or damage reported in attack, which comes two weeks after a man was lightly injured when projectiles hit a residential area.

Seven mortar shells were fired from the Gaza Strip into the Eshkol regional council Monday.

No injuries were reported and no damage was caused.

Two weeks ago, in a similar incident, four to five mortar shells were fired into the same area and hit a residential area. One man suffered light wounds to his upper body.

The wounded man was airlifted by the IDF to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba while fully conscious.

Earlier on the day of the attack, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi had warned that the security situation at the Gaza Strip border is very fragile and may deteriorate rapidly. (© 1995 - 2010 The Jerusalem Post. 12/20/10)
