Rocket fire from Gaza
Rocket fire from Gaza Flash 90

The calm of the holiday was disturbed in the Gaza Belt on Sunday evening when, shortly after 11:00 p.m., the “Red Alert” incoming rocket siren was heard in Nahal Oz, Alumim and the area.

Two rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, but the first one missed the target and exploded on the Gazan side of the border.

A second rocket exploded in an open area of the Eshkol Regional Council. There were no physical injuries or damages.

Rocket attacks on the south have been intermittent over the past few weeks. Last week, a rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system as it was headed towards the city of Ashdod.

On September 21, a rocket that was fired from Gaza exploded in the Hof Ashkelon region of southern Israel.

The rocket exploded in an open region, causing no physical injuries or damages.
