Four missiles hit the Eshkol and Sdot regions of southern Israel on Sunday morning, causing widespread panic when local early warning systems failed to activate.

Six more rockets hits the area throughout the day on Saturday, keeping most residents of southwestern Israel in bomb shelters.

Israeli aircraft responded to Saturday's rocket fire with overnight bombing runs against Hamas arms depots and smuggling tunnels in Gaza.
