Terrorists from Hamas-controlled Gaza fired two Grad missiles at southern Israel on Saturday night. One of the missiles hit a home in the city of Netivot.

A second missile, fired at the city of Be’er Sheva, exploded in an open area of the city.

Magen David Adom treated seven people who suffered injuries from the rocket attacks. Three of them fell in Be’er Sheva as they were running towards a protected space. Four other people suffered from shock.

On Wednesday evening, the IDF foiled an attempt by Gaza-based terrorists to fire a rocket at southern Israel. IAF aircraft hit a terrorist squad in central Gaza, as it was making final preparations to fire a rocket.

The IDF noted that the squad had been involved in previous rocket attacks on southern Israel. A direct hit at the targets was identified.

Saturday night’s attack was the second time in a little over a week that a terrorist rocket hit a home. Last Friday morning, PA Arab terrorists attacked southern Israel with rocket fire that struck a house in Sderot. No one was physically wounded but a resident was hospitalized in a state of shock.
