JNS.org Two mortar shells launched by terrorists in Gaza hit southern Israel on Sunday afternoon. No injuries or damage were reported, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

The mortar shells fell around 1:30 p.m. in an open field near the Eshkol region in Israel’s western Negev desert. Since last year’s Operation Pillar of Defense in Gaza, rocket fire has been significantly reduced. Nevertheless, sporadic rocket fire continues to threaten southern Israel. According to the IDF, more than 30 rockets have been fired at the region since the beginning on 2013.
