Three rockets were fired at the Negev from the Gaza Strip Thursday evening, according to police. No casualties or damage were reported in the attacks.

At 8:10 p.m. police said two rockets were fired at the western Negev and landed in open territory. Bomb squad units were surveying the scene to locate the rockets.

A third rocket exploded around the same time in the Eshkol Regional Council in an open area.

The defense establishment has told southern residents to stay indoors and near a bomb shelter fearing retribution by Gazan terrorists over an assassination of a prominent Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade commander earlier Thursday.
