Independence Day celebrations as rocket explodes in region; no
reports of injuries, damages
While Independence Day celebrations are continuing throughout the
country, residents of Hof Ashkelon Regional Council once again found
themselves running for shelter.
An air raid siren was sounded on Wednesday night and one rocket
exploded in the region. There were no reports of injuries or damages.
Residents told Ynet that at around half past midnight, at the height
of an Independence Day party, a siren sounded. Some of the residents
said that they also heard an explosion.
The rocket was most likely fired from the Gaza Strip and exploded in
an open area within the regional council.
On Sunday, it was reported that a Qassam rocket exploded in an open
area in the Sha´ar Hanegev Regional Council. No Color Red alert was
sounded, but no one was injured and there were no reports of damages.
