Two rockets fired by Gaza terrorists slammed into a greenhouse in the Hof Ashkelon region Tuesday afternoon, breaking a brief lull in hostilities after four days of cross border fire.

The building suffered damage, but there were no reports of injuries.

The rockets were the first after several hours of quiet since the morning, when a Grad rocket was fired at Ashdod, landing in an open field and causing no injuries or damage.

Since Saturday more than 160 rockets and mortar shells were fired on Israel from Gaza. More than 40 Israelis were reported lightly injured, mostly suffering from shock and light shrapnel injuries.

Israel retaliated by firing on rocket launching squads and terrorist infrastructure.
