June 22, 2012 at 2:35 PM

JERUSALEM, June 22 (UPI) -- Two Qassam rockets fired from northern Gaza landed in open areas of the Eshkol Regional Council in Israel's Negev region Friday, Israeli officials said.

No injuries were reported.

The rocket launching was a continuation of violence that flared in the area earlier in the week, Ynetnews reported.

On Monday, attackers killed a civilian working on the Israel-Egypt border fence.

Four days of rocket fire followed, with the rockets coming from the Gaza Strip, Israeli officials said.

Israeli troops fired at several Gaza targets in response.
