Two mortar shells from Gaza hit western Negev


Two mortar shells from the Gaza Strip landed in Israel Sunday afternoon, the Israeli military said. There were no injuries or damage.

The shells fell at 1:30 p.m. in an open area in the Eshkol region in the western Negev. Last Monday, soldiers discovered a roadside bomb positioned along the border with the Gaza Strip and safely disposed of the device. No injuries or damage were caused in the incident.

Also last week, the army killed a suspected terrorist during a shootout in the West Bank. Islamic Jihad, which often shoots rockets out of the Strip, claimed Mohammed Aazi was a member of its organization. Israel said he planned a Tel Aviv bus bombing last November that left over 20 people injured.
