Gaza-based terrorists fired a Qassam rocket at southern Israel on Tuesday evening. The rocket exploded in an open area in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council.

There were no reports of physical injuries or damages.

On Monday, terrorists in Gaza launched a rocket at the town of Sderot. The rocket landed in an area about a kilometer away from Israel's security fence along the Gaza border. The explosion occurred in an open area, and no property damage was reported by the authorities. No one was physically injured.

Last week, as Israelis celebrated the Jewish State’s 64th Independence Day, terrorists from Gaza fired a rocket at the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council. In this attack as well, the rocket exploded in an open area. No physical injuries or damages were reported.

In March, terror gangs in Gaza fired over 200 rockets into Israel over a period of four days following the targeted killing of Popular Resistance Committee leader Zuhir Musa Ahmed Qaisi and his deputy, Mahmoud Ahmed Mahmoud Hanani.

The quiet in the south has mostly been maintained since Egypt brokered a ceasefire between the sides. However, a ‘ceasefire’ for the terrorist groups mean that they do not fire barrages of rockets, but periodically send a reminder to Israelis that they have the ability to disrupt their lives.
