Gaza militants fired two Qassam rockets into the Western Negev on Friday, a few days before Israel's truce with Hamas was set to come to an end next week.

The rockets stuck open areas and caused neither damage nor casualties.

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert met with Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni on Wednesday to discuss the future of Israel's policy on the Gaza Strip.

Just hours before the meeting, a Qassam rocket struck the western Negev, following a two-day lull in fire from Gaza.

The prime minister would not allow any details of the meeting to be released to the public, but topics on the agenda included Israel's response to Hamas in light of the militant group's continued violations of the truce.
