(JTA) – Two rockets fired from Gaza landed in open areas in Israel’s Negev Desert.
No injuries were reported from the rockets fired Wednesday night, the Times of Israel reported.
The attack came eight days after a Grad rocket fired from Gaza landed in the Israeli town of Gan Yavneh. Grad rockets have a longer range than Kassams and had not previously been fired from Gaza.
During last summer’s Israel-Gaza war, Palestinians fired over 4,000 rockets at Israeli towns and cities. Over 2,200 people were killed in the war, the majority of them Palestinians.
