Palestinian Arab terrorists operating out of the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday fired six rockets into southern Israel, contradicting reports that the area is currently enjoying an unofficial Israeli-Hamas ceasefire.
Five of the rockets landed in open areas just outside communities in southwestern Israel, causing no injuries or damage. One rocket, however, landed in the backyard of an Israeli home, damaging it and several neighboring houses.
Palestinian snipers were also active in the area on Wednesday, opening fire on a group of Jewish farmers in southern Israel. One of the farmers was lightly wounded in the shooting.
Despite the ongoing violence, Israel this week continued, contrary to international claims, to open Gaza's border crossings on a daily basis to allow the entry of humanitarian aid and even non-essential goods.
On Wednesday, 149 trucks filled with food and medical supplies flowed through the Israeli crossings into Gaza.
