( A Qassam rocket fired from Gaza exploded east of the border fence in an open area in the Eshkol region of southern Israel on Saturday, marking the second Gaza rocket to hit the Jewish state since the Aug. 26 cease-fire that ended the summer war between Israel and Hamas.

No injuries or damage resulted from the rocket fire.

“It doesn’t matter to us who fired [the rocket], whether it was Hamas or a rogue group,” said Haim Yellin, head of the Eshkol Regional Council, according to Israel Hayom. “We demand a military response to rockets fired at the residents of Israel. The military accomplishments of Operation Protective Edge are disappearing and there is no diplomatic arrangement that will ensure true calm for the residents of the south and all of Israel.”
