At least 10 rockets were fired at at the South on Friday morning with some landing in Ashdod, Ashkelon and Beersheba.
All of the rockets landed in open territory and no injuries or damage were reported. The rocket fire comes less than a day after a three-stage terror attack near Eilat killed eight Israelis.

IAF aircraft struck seven Hamas security installations in
Gaza early Friday morning, killing at least one Palestinian, in further
retaliation for the attacks on Thursday.
residents said three compounds controlled by Hamas were hit in the overnight raids. Medical
officials said a 13-year-old boy in a nearby building was killed and 17
people were wounded.
Defense sources said the attackers infiltrated from Gaza via Egypt's Sinai desert, despite stepped up efforts by Egyptian security forces in recent days to rein in Palestinian terrorists.
"If anyone thinks the State of Israel will resign itself to this, they
are wrong," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in a brief television
address about the most deadly attack in Israel since 2008.
The IDF said seven gunmen were killed in southern Israel, including
two who blew themselves up in suicide attacks on one of the buses and
in a confrontation with soldiers.
Egyptian soldiers apparently shot dead two gunmen, the military said.
