Less than day after Air Force thwarts rocket-launching from Gaza, Palestinian terrorists fire two projectiles in direction of Netivot

Two rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza Sunday morning exploded in open areas located within the Merhavim Regional Council, near Netivot. There were no reports of injury or damage.

The rockets were fired in the direction of Netivot.

A tense calm has prevailed over southern Israel since the latest round of violence, during which dozens of rockets were fired from Gaza, ended last month. But on Saturday the Air Force fired at a Gaza terror cell east of Rafah planning to fire rockets at Israel.

Palestinian sources said two missiles were fired at two terrorists riding a motorcycle, wounding them lightly.

The military wings of Islamic Jihad and of the Popular Resistance Committees rushed to issue a statement Saturday accusing Israel of blatantly violating the lull in the area.

Wednesday night, terrorists in Sinai fired three rockets at the southern resort town of Eilat; no injuries or damages were reported in that attack. Hamas denied any involvement.

Thousands of Israelis flocked to south Israel´s parks and nature reserves on Saturday. The Israel Nature and Parks Authority said an even greater number of people are expected to travel to the south over the Passover holiday.
