Palestinian rocket hits Beersheba

Police say Gaza militants fired two rockets at the Israeli city of Beersheba _ reaching deeper into Israel than ever before.
Beersheba is located 46 kilometers (28 miles) from Gaza.
Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld says the long-range rocket landed in an open area outside the city on Tuesday evening. The mayor of Beersheba has told Israel television that the other rocket hit an empty kindergarten.
Israel is currently conducting an air offensive to crush Gaza's rulers, militant group Hamas. They have vowed to strike deep into Israel in response. More than 360 Palestinians and four Israelis have been killed so far.
