Two rockets exploded in Ashkelon Coast Regional Council on Wednesday afternoon. Approximately five other rockets were shot into Israel from Gaza earlier on Wednesday. No physical injuries or property damage has been reported.
Reports say the projectiles were short range "Qassam" style rockets. Izz ad-Din al-Qassam was an upper class Arab Muslim born in Syria. In the 1920s and 1930s he led a variety of assaults in the Middle East.
