Seven Kassam rockets fired by Palestinians from the Gaza Strip landed in Israel on Sunday with the latest rocket landing near a building in central Sderot and failing to explode. Earlier, a Kassam landed in a Carlsberg factory warehouse in southern Ashkelon's industrial zone. No one was in the warehouse at the time and no casualties were reported. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack and added that they had used an enhanced rocket. The attacks started in the early afternoon hours when two rockets landed in open areas in the Eshkol Regional Council. Three hours later, another Kassam rocket was fired from the northern Gaza Strip and landed near a kibbutz in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council. No one was wounded and no damage was reported.
