Two Kassam rockets landed on Wednesday in the western Negev. There were no injuries. One of the rockets landed in a settled area next to Sderot and caused light damage to a gas station. Security forces were conducting searches for the second rocket, which according to estimations fell in Palestinian territory. On Tuesday night the IDF fired on the buffer zone in northern Gaza and IAF planes bombed eight access roads leading to Kassam launch sites. In spite of this, the two rockets were launched toward the western Negev. In southern Gaza, a terrorist from the Al-Aksa Martyrs' Brigade detonated a car bomb along the border fence with Egypt. There were no injuries.
