    Two Kassam rockets fired from Gaza landed in Sderot.

    The rockets, fired Wednesday evening, landed in open areas of the southern Israeli city, causing no injuries or damage. The city’s advance warning system did not sound, according to reports.

    It is the second time Kassams have been fired at Israel this week. On Sunday, two rockets were launched at southern Israel. The attacks came despite an annoucement by Hamas that it had secured agreement among radical groups to stop attacking Israel in order to avoid retaliatory Israeli attacks.
