Today (Saturday) at 9:32 am, a Red Alert siren was sounded in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council after a rocket was fired from Gaza into Israeli territory. The rocket exploded in an open field and no injuries were reported.

In response to the second rocket fire from Gaza within the past three days, IDF tanks attacked a Hamas outpost in the northern Gaza Strip near Beit Lahia. At about 12:30 pm, another attack was conducted on an additional Hamas outpost located northwest of Gaza City.

The most recent terror attack from Gaza occurred on Wednesday, as reported by JOL, when a rocket exploded within an open field in the Sdot Negev Regional Council. No injuries nor damage were reported and security forces swept the area in order to locate debris from the rocket. A Red Alert siren was not sounded with the rocket fire most likely because of the fact that the rocket was aimed towards an uninhabited area.
