Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired four Grad-model rockets at the southern town of Netivot on Tuesday night, ending a brief period of calm.

The Iron Dome anti-rocket system intercepted two of the rockets. Two more exploded in open fields outside of the town.

Local residents ran for cover as an air raid siren sounded on three separate occasions.

On Tuesday morning, a Kassam rocket exploded in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council, damaging buildings.

No one was injured in the rocket fire.

Terrorist groups in Gaza fired some 150 rockets into Israel last week until an informal cease fire was reached between the Gaza-based groups and Israel. Israeli officials characterized the nature of the deal as: Quiet will be met by quiet, fire will be met by fire. staff contributed to this report.
