Gaza militants have fired rockets at the Israeli city of Beersheba, 40 km (24 miles) from the Gaza Strip.

One rocket hit an empty kindergarten and another landed in open space. There were no reports of casualties from the strikes. Schoolchildren and students have been advised to stay at home because of the threat of further attacks.

The strike came as Israel's cabinet meet to discuss proposals for an immediate suspension of air operations against Gaza.
