23-Apr-14: Terrorist rocket fire from Gaza is renewed this evening

Israel National News and other sources are reporting that two Gazan rockets were fired this evening (Wednesday) in Israel's general direction, triggering Color Red/Tzeva Adom sirens in Sderot, Hof Ashkelon, Yad Mordechai, Gevim and other southern Israel locations. One appears to have exploded inside Israel, location as yet undisclosed. The second is evidently yet another fell short.

We are hearing of additional rocket attacks in other parts of the same area, and in the Shaar Hanegev region (population about 6,000) all between about 18:45 and 19:00 this evening. Walla, a Hebrew-language news channel, says at least two Gazan rockets exploded inside Gaza with (as usual) unknown consequences.

The IDF says one of the incoming rockets crashed into the Erez Crossing compound that includes a pedestrian and cargo terminal and is located in the northern end of the Gaza Strip on the border with Israel.
