Gazans are still firing rockets at Israel

The Gaza NGO Safety Office (GANSO) has not updated their normal biweekly reports of rocket and other activity, but they do send out alerts when they find out about significant incidents that could affect the safety of NGO workers in Gaza.

And that includes Gaza rockets.

Even though there have been very few rockets reaching Israel in September, that doesn't mean that there weren't a lot more attempts: (HMR="Home Made Rockets")

MU, 06 SEP: Overnight Pal. ops fired 1 HMR from Gaza.

07 Sept, 1630hrs: Israeli media sources report 1 HMR fired from Gaza landed in Israeli territory.

MU, 08 SEP: Overnight Pal. ops. fired 2 HMR from MA

MU, 10 SEP: Overnight Pal. ops. fired 1 HMR from E of Al Maghazi, the rocket exploded prematurely.

MU, 11 SEP: Overnight Palestinian operatives fired 1 Grad rocket from west of Khan Yunis.

MU, 13 SEP: Overnight Palestinian operatives fired 1 HMR from east of Jabalia, NG

MU, 14 SEP: Overnight Pal. ops. fired 2 HMR from MA towards Israeli, 1 rocket exploded prematurely and the other one dropped short and landed in the Pal. terr.

MU, 17 SEP: Pal. ops. fired 1 HMR from E of Al Maghazi towards the Green line.

MU, 20 SEP: Overnight Pal. ops. fired 3 HMR from Gaza Strip. No injury or damage reported.

22 Sept, 1650hrs: Pal. ops. fired 1 HMR from Al Maghazi towards the green line, but the rocket dropped short and landed E of Al Maghazi, MA

MU, 24 SEP: Overnight Pal. ops. attempted to fire 1 HMR from N of Beit Lahiya, however the rocket exploded prematurely.

MU, 25 SEP: Overnight Pal. ops. fired 2 HMR rockets from Middle Area. One of the rockets exploded prematurely and landed in the Pal. terr.

MU, 26 SEP: Overnight Palestinian operatives fired 1 HMR from Deir Al Balah towards the Green line.
That's 17 Qassams and one Grad fired towards Israel, of which at least 6 and probably more landed in Gaza itself or exploded prematurely.

But it isn't like the terrorists ever stopped firing rockets towards Israeli civilians.
