JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Two rockets exploded in a southern Israeli town near the Gaza border on Thursday, the second day of U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to the Jewish state, Israeli police said.
One of the rockets damaged the yard of an Israeli home but there were no immediate reports of injuries. There were also no immediate claims of responsibility issued in Hamas Islamist-ruled Gaza.
