Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists launched a Qassam rocket attack Monday night at southern Israel.

The attack, launched from northern Gaza, was aimed at Israel's Gaza Belt region, located only a few kilometers from the Hamas terrorist-run region.

Qassam rockets, although modified in the past several years, still are limited to a range of approximately 10 to 15 kilometers. One rocket reached southern Israel, landing in an open area in the Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council district.

No one was injured and no damage was reported.

The attack was the third in four days; Gaza terrorists fired two Qassam rockets at the Western Negev on Saturday evening. The two rockets landed in the Ashkelon Coastal Regional district and the Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council district.

On Friday, the Eshkol Regional Council district was shelled as well. There were no physical injuries and no damage reported in any of the attacks.
