Two Kassam rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed in open areas in the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel on Friday. No injuries or damage were reported.
The remnants of a Grad missile were also discovered in the Be’er Tuvia Regional Council, near Ashdod. As security forces arrived at the scene Friday morning, it remained unclear when the missile had landed.
Four rockets were fired toward the southern city of Ashkelon Thursday evening, one of which was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
The latest round of Gaza-based attacks began Monday. Since then, more than 120 rockets and missiles have been fired into Israel.
On Thursday, Israeli Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor lodged a formal complaint with the Security Council and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon regarding the recent barrage of attacks from the Strip. He called on the international community to recognize Israel’s right to self defense.
“So long as there are no quiet towns in southern Israel, Gaza won’t be quiet either,” Prosor said. He also protested the fact that Israel’s compliance with UN demands to allow aid into Gaza is met with rocket fire.
