A Grad rocket landed Friday morning (July 30) in the city of Ashkelon. No casualties were reported but several persons who were present at the scene are being treated psychologically. Damage was caused to buildings and vehicles in the area. Security forces are currently searching the area.

Two Qassam rockets were fired last week and landed close to communities in the south of Israel. One of the rockets exploded west of Ashkelon, and the other in an open area south of the city. No damage or casualties were caused in either event.

In the beginning of the month, IAF aircrafts hit a weapons manufacturing site north of the Gaza Strip and two smuggling tunnels south of the Strip, after which terrorists fired Qassam rockets at Israel. The rocket landed in the area of the Sdot Negev Regional Council without causing damage or casualties.
