Sirens were sounded on Wednesday evening in the city of Sderot and in the localities of Ibim and Nir Am in the Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council.

Terrorists from the Gaza Strip fired one rocket that exploded in an open area near Sderot. Shrapnel from the rocket hit a yard and a car in Sderot. A fire broke at the scene. There were no physical injuries, but four people were treated for anxiety.

Police announced that sappers were called to evacuate a "rocket-type item" from a yard in the city of Sderot.

On Monday, for the first time in about six months, a rocket was fired at Israel from Gaza, setting off red color sirens in multiple communities in the Gaza envelope.

The rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, and there were no casualties.

Hours later, in retaliation for the rocket attack, IAF fighter jets attacked a number of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip and destroyed a workshop for the production of weapons used by the organization.
