Rocket fire was again directed at southern Israel from Gaza on Sunday night, for the third night in a row.
At around 11:40 pm, one rocket was launched from northern Gaza towards southern Israel. That projectile, however, never made it over the border security fence and triggered only the “open area” Red Alert incoming rocket siren.
“It appears that the rocket landed in Gaza territory,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.
Earlier in the evening, two rockets were fired at the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council district in southern Israel from a position in northern Gaza.
Neither launch, fired at around 10:30 pm, triggered the Red Alert incoming rocket siren in surrounding Jewish communities, and only one rocket made it into Israeli territory.
“One launch has been identified from the Gaza Strip to Israeli territory. An open-air warning was issued only,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
Both projectiles exploded near the Gaza border in an open field between Netiv Ha’Asara and Kibbutz Erez, Ynet reported. There were no physical injuries and no property damage was reported.
On Saturday night terrorists fired four rockets at the Jewish State. One of the rockets was aimed at the southern border city of Sderot. That projectile was blown out of the sky by an interceptor missile from the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system. The rest of the rockets landed in open areas, causing no physical injuries, although some damage was reported.
On Friday night 36 rockets were fired at Israel, including six that were intercepted by the Iron Dome system. The others landed in open areas and caused minimal damage.
