Gaza terrorists fired four rockets at the Eshkol region on Tuesday afternoon. The IDF has ordered everyone in the area to take shelter.

No injuries have been reported.

Terrorists began escalating their attacks on the Sabbath, with two rockets that hit the Mitzpeh Ramon region. Just hours later, terrorists fired on civilian workers along the security fence in Gaza, killing Said Fashapshe of Haifa and leaving a second man wounded.

The IAF responded by taking out terror targets in Gaza, including a terror cell engaged in firing rockets at southern Israel. Sources in Gaza said two terrorists were killed in the strike.

Terrorists continued their rocket fire, hitting southern Israel four times between Monday night and Tuesday morning.
