Gaza militants fired a Qassam rocket into Israel on Wednesday, causing no casualties or damage. The rocket exploded in an open area in the Eshkol region in the western Negev.


The last rocket attack occurred 10 days ago, where a Qassam exploded in an open area in the Ashkelon region of the Negev. The Israel Air Force bombed two targets in southern Gaza in retaliation for the rocket attack.


Last month, two Katyusha rockets were fired at the southern port city of Eilat, one landing in an open area in the Jordanian city of Aqaba, and the second landed in the Eilat port, causing no casualties.
