Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday evening landed in open areas near the southern town of Netivot and in the Eshkol region.

No injuries or damage were reported.

Five rockets struck southern Israel on Tuesday evening, causing no damage or injuries.

Wednesday evening’s attack followed a barrage of 55 rockets and mortars that fell on southern Israel on Monday morning. Most fell in open areas, causing no damage, although one rocket, also fired into the Eshkol region, hit a petting zoo and caused the death of two goats.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad claimed joint responsibility for the Monday attacks, which it said were in retaliation for a Sunday IAF airstrike that had killed one operative and wounded another, along with several civilians. The IDF claimed the men were senior Hamas operatives planning an attack.
