28-Oct-12: Two additional rounds of rocket fire directed at Israelis in the past hour
Around 4:05 pm this afternoon (Sunday), several rockets (it appears to have been three, according to Times of Israel) crashed and exploded in the Hof Ashkelon region of southern Israel. These all blew up in open fields and as far as we can tell at this stage, there are neither injuries nor property damage. This was not the outcome the terrorists sought and they will certainly keep trying unless someone from the Israeli side stops them; only the Israeli side has the interest and the potential ability to do that.
Then a few minutes ago, at about 4:35 pm, a further round of rockets was fired off by the Gazan Palestinian Arab terror gangs, and are believed to have crashed and exploded in the Eshkol region. We do not yet have either confirmation or an indication of the result of the later round.
