Terrorists fire 18 rockets at Israel
Palestinian terrorists continued to attack Israeli civilian areas on Wednesday, firing 18 projectiles by late afternoon, including a phosphorous mortar shell that hit the Eshkol region.
In the latest attack, Kassams hit open areas near Ashdod and Ashkelon. Earlier, a rocket fell near a kibbutz in the Sdot Negev region. In the afternoon, two Grad rockets hit the Shfela region, in the central district, while Ashdod, Ashkelon, Sderot and Beersheba were also hit.
Although dozens of Grad-type rockets have plagued the cities during the conflict, defense officials have said that the Islamic group was nearing the end of its supply.
