In light of Wednesday's rocket attack in Beersheba, the Airport Authority changed the landing patterns at Ben Gurion Airport on Thursday evening, the body said in a statement.

This does not change the flights schedules.

On Wednesday morning, two rockets launched from the Gaza landed in Israel, one hit a home in Beersheba and the second fell in the sea next to a central Israeli city.

The Israeli Air Force responded and struck 20 terror targets across the Gaza Strip later that morning.
