Terrorists from Hamas-controlled Gaza fired another rocket on southern Israel Thursday night, about the same time U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was concluding talks with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and heading for a discussion with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
The rocket exploded in an open area in the Western Negev but not far from homes. There were no injuries or damage.
Hamas has sharply escalated the number and gravity of terrorist attacks on Israeli soldiers and civilians the past month.
Terrorist launched at least three rockets on Israel the past five days, sending a clear message to Abbas and the Obama administration to remind them that Hamas to be dealt with in any agreement between the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and Israel.
