Two rockets fired by Gaza terrorists exploded outside a community in the Eshkol region of southern Israel on Friday evening. There were no physical injuries.

Around 9:15 p.m., sirens were heard in Tel Aviv and in the Gush Dan region, for the third time in several hours.

At least three rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system over the region.

Earlier, a rocket from Gaza hit an empty kindergarten in the town of Gan Yavne, near Ashdod. A woman who was nearby suffered minor injuries from shattered glass.

Since midnight Thursday, more than 100 rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel.
