Second Gaza rocket strikes Israel in two days


A rocket fired from Gaza struck Israel for the second time in two days.

The rocket landed in an open area of southern Israel near Ashkelon early Monday morning. No damage was reported.

Early Sunday morning, a rocket from Gaza struck the Sdot Negev Regional Council as local residents were gathered to celebrate Lag b'Omer; the festivities were shut down and revelers sent home.

The Israel Air Force responded to Sunday's rocket attack by striking a terrorist training base in Gaza and what it called a weapons storage facility.  The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine confirmed to Reuters that the training base was hit.

Since the Sunday attack, the Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and Gaza, through which all goods pass, has remained closed.
