Gaza rocket hits home in southern Israel

June 18, 2014 9:45 P.M. (Updated: June 20, 2014 9:10 A.M.)
BEERSHEBA (Ma'an) -- Israeli sources said that a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip directly hit a home in a kibbutz in the Shaar HaNegev region of southern Israel on Wednesday, causing material damage but no injuries.

Another rocket landed in an open area, also on Wednesday evening, causing no damage, the Israeli army said.

Police from the nearby city of Sderot rushed to the scene, accompanied by explosive experts.

Sirens were heard around 9:20 p.m. on Wednesday in the Shaar HaNegev region before the rockets landed.

Israeli forces have repeatedly bombed the Gaza Strip in recent weeks, killing two people -- including a seven-year-old child -- last week, and injuring at least two more.

Although militants in the Gaza Strip frequently homemade projectiles and rockets into Israel, they usually land harmlessly in open areas.
