Rocket fired by Gaza terrorists explodes in agricultural filed within Sha´ar Hanegev Regional Council

The Color Red siren was heard in several Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip Wednesday evening, just as many of the region´s children were sitting by bonfires lighted in celebration of Lag B´Omer.

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. (Copyright 2012 © Yedioth Internet 05/09/12)
