Gaza terrorists fired two rockets towards southern Israel on Wednesday evening.

Both rockets exploded in the Shaar HaNegev Regional Council. One of the rockets hit a building and caused it minor damage, and the second exploded in an open area.

There were no physical injuries. The “Red Alert” rocket siren was sounded in the region, including in the city of Sderot, before the rockets exploded.

Wednesday evening’s rocket fire is the latest in a string of attacks from Gaza over the past week. On Monday evening, a rocket fired from Gaza exploded in an open area in the city of Ashkelon.

There were no physical injuries or damages in the attack.

On Saturday, four rockets were fired from Gaza, causing no physical injuries or damages.

After both attacks, the Israeli Air Force retaliated by striking terror-related targets in Gaza.

Meanwhile on Wednesday, the IDF prepared to station Iron Dome anti-missile defense units in the coastal region of Ashdod and Tel Aviv.
