Several rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed overnight Wednesday in the Eshkol region of southern Israel. No injuries were reported and no damage was immediately apparent.

Residents reported hearing several explosions, but said that they did not hear warning sirens in the area.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that teams would comb the vicinity for the rockets’ landing sites on Thursday morning.

Rocket fire from the Strip has been sporadic since an eight-day Israeli campaign against Gaza terrorists last November. The past several weeks, however, have seen an uptick in attacks, as preparations progressed for peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
