Israel considers Hamas responsible for the continued rocket fire

In the past few months, residents of Israel’s southern communities have suffered repeated rocket barrages.

Last month, two rockets fired at Sderot hit two factories but caused no injuries. Dozens of rockets were fired at the Eshkol Regional Council that same night in response to the killing of a Gaza terrorist who planned a terror attack.

Also in August, rocket parts were also discovered in Eilat, however no hits were traced.
