Gaza terrorists fired a salvo of rockets towards southern and central Israel on Friday evening.

Three rockets exploded in open areas in the Eshkol region in the Negev.

The Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted a rocket over Ashkelon. Anoter rocket exploded in an open area near the city.

Another two rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome over Ashdod.

In central Israel, the Iron Dome intercepted two rockets over Rosh Haayin and three over Petah Tikva.

The rocket salvo coincided with the Israeli Cabinet’s announcement that it had unanimously voted to reject a ceasefire proposed by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Earlier on Friday, the London-based Al Hayat newspaper reported that Hamas had agreed to a five-day "humanitarian ceasefire" on terms suggested by Kerry.

In an earlier attack on Friday, two rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system over central Israel.
