Following a quiet night, Hamas again resumed firing rockets at the south's residents. One hit next to a kindergarten in the Eshkol Council, and miraculously no one was injured, nor damages sustained.
At least 17 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at Ashkelon, Netivot, and the residents of the Eshkol, Bnei Shimon, Sdot Negev, and Ashkelon Coast Regional Councils, respectively, of which four were intercepted by Iron Dome. The remainder exploded in open areas. Additionally, there were several rockets which exploded in the Hevel Eshkol area without benefit of the "Tzeva Adom" warning alert.
