11-Sep-12: Two more Gazan rockets explode in southern Israel tonight
Two additional Qassam rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel around 9:30 tonight. Both landed in open areas of the Sha'ar Henegev region which borders the Gaza Strip [source]. The Tzeva Adom, or Code Red, warning system warned civilian residents of the incoming attack. Security forces are currently searching the area for the rockets’ remains.
Sha'ar Hanegev has 6,000 Israeli residents. Its area includes the city of Sderot, located almost on the border with the terrorist-rich Gaza Strip, plus ten kibbutzim (Bror Hayil, Dorot, Erez, Gavem, Kfar Aza, Mefalsim, Nahal Oz, Nir Am, Or HaNer and Ruhama), and one moshav - Yakhini.
