      An Israeli woman suffered physical injuries in a Sabbath rocket attack on the city of Sderot.

      Terrorists from Hamas-controlled Gaza fired at least four rockets towards the city throughout the day on Saturday. Three of them exploded in open areas outside the city and the fourth exploded in an open area inside the city.

      A 29-year-old resident of Sderot suffered light injuries to her leg after she slipped while making her way to a protected space. She was taken for further treatment at the Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon.

      On Saturday evening, two rockets exploded in the Eshkol Regional Council, causing no physical injuries or damages.

      On Friday night, terrorists from Gaza shattered the calm of the Sabbath as they fired two rockets which exploded in agricultural areas in the Eshkol Regional Council. There were no physical injuries or property damage.

      On Wednesday, a rocket was fired into Israel from Gaza, striking an open area in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. The Color Red early warning siren sounded in the region. There were no reports of any physical injuries or property damage.

      On Tuesday evening, after weeks of relative calm, Ashkelon was attacked by two Grad-style missiles that were fired by terrorists in northern Gaza.

      One rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile shield, while the other exploded in an open field.

      In June, Hamas terrorists fired more than 100 rockets at Israel within several days, eventually announcing it has agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire. However, the Gaza-based terrorist groups take advantage of the ‘ceasefires’ to periodically send a reminder to Israelis that they have the ability to fire rockets.
