Intensive rocket fire and shelling attacks by Hamas and allied terrorists continued to be aimed at Israel’s Gaza border towns and the nearby coastal city of Ashkelon throughout the day on Monday.
It is not clear why Gaza terrorists are focusing so intently on the Sha’ar HaNegev, Sdot Negev and Eshkol Regional Council districts.
The terrorists seem particularly focused on Kibbutzim Alumim and Nahal Oz, where a 4-year-old child was killed in one such attack last Friday.
Most of the residents of the targeted areas have temporarily evacuated in order to more efficiently facilitate defense of the area by the IDF.
