A rocket shot from Gaza has landed near Beersheba.
The attack occurred around the time Prime Minister and Likud head Benjamin Netanyahu was campaigning in the city.
Some reports indicate he was there at the time of the attack, but Likud says he had left the area by then.
Channel 12 shows a clip of Netanyahu and his entourage leaving a Beersheba restaurant. Likud says the footage preceded the rocket fire.

Several candidates have been campaigning in Beersheba and other areas of the northern Negev throughout the day.
The rocket seemingly landed in an open area without causing damage or injuries. No alarms sounded.
Gaza terror groups have previously targeted Netanyahu when he campaigns in the south, twice forcing him offstage at events in 2019.
