A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip exploded in a backyard in the southern city of Netivot shortly after 7:30 pm Friday.
Frightened residents reported hearing explosion sounds. The Color Red alert system was activated before the rocket hit the area.
Haim, who lives in the neighborhood hit by the rocket, told Ynet: "We were in the middle of the Shabbat meal, heard the rocket alert and ran into a fortified area. We heard a loud explosion. It felt like an earthquake. We went out and saw that the rocket had landed in house's backyard."
Dozens of rocekts were launched into Israel in recent week, after the IAF seriously injured 2 Jihadists in Gaza.
