BREAKING NEWS – Palestinian terrorists fired two rockets at Israel on Sunday night; one exploded in an open area in Eshkol, causing no injuries or damage, and the second failed to cross into Israel, though it triggered warning sirens. The rocket that failed to cross into Israel set off sirens in the Sha’ar Hanegev region, sending residents fleeing for cover. The rocket that did explode in Israel did not set off sirens as it was headed towards an unpopulated area, army sources said.

This latest attack adds to the tensions that have risen to the surface in light of the Palestinian terrorist attacks that have claimed the lives of four Israelis in Jerusalem and the northern West Bank these past few days. Last month, the Israel Air Force struck targets in the Gaza Strip after a number of rockets were launched at western Negev towns. The Sheikh Omar Hadid Brigade, a Salafist organization affiliated with Islamic State, claimed credit for rocket attacks against Israel.
