16-May-13: Another Gazan rocket seeks, but does not find, Israeli victims on Wednesday

AFP calls it an 'uptick':
Over the past two months, there has been an uptick in rocket fire on southern Israel after more than three months of complete quiet following a deadly confrontation in November which ended with an Egyptian-brokered truce.
They report that something explosive - either a mortar or a rocket - was fired in the customary indiscriminate way into southern Israel during yesterday afternoon, the festival day of Shavuot. Israel police say it crashed into the frequently hit Eshkol region; fortunately, no damage, no injuries. This is an accidental result - the terrorists who control huge arsenals of rockets and mortars and store them in Gaza under Hamas control have no interest at all in who or what is hit. Their goal is to sow terror, and if there are actual injuries or damage, then that's cream on their pie.
