BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Seven rockets fired from the Gaza Strip hit southern Israel early Monday, Israel's military said.

An Israeli army spokesman told Ma'an that three rockets landed in the Shaar HaNegev regional council and two landed in Sderot, with no reports of damage or injuries.

A further two rockets landed in the Eshkol regional council.

An anti-tank missile was also fired at Israeli soldiers patrolling a border area in the southern Gaza Strip, the spokesman added, with no reports of injuries or damage.

Although Hamas -- which runs the Gaza Strip -- and Israel have maintained a fragile ceasefire since Nov. 2012, militant groups in the besieged Palestinian coastal enclave frequently launch rockets into Israel.

The majority of these attacks, which primarily involve homemade projectiles, land harmlessly in open areas across southern Israel.

Israel has maintained a severe economic blockade on the Gaza Strip's 1.7 million residents since 2006.

The blockade has severely limited the imports and exports of the Gaza Strip and has led to frequent humanitarian crises and hardship for Gazans.

These rocket attacks will end in a hurry when the EU and US cut all aid to Hamas. Stupid Hamas may not understand how this action is non-productive, but it will understand is must stop when the money stops coming.

The "7 Gaza rockets hitting southern Israel" provide a justification, for Israel targeting militant sites, even if located among Gaza civilians !!

Can't have "Palestine" when it has 6 or 7 or 8 different armies running around claiming to represent the true "resistance". Palestinians have to make their minds up and decide if they are one country or not. Right now they clearly are two countries and Gaza might devolve into city states.
