Jerusalem Post journalist Ben Hartman reported 57 minutes after the ceasefire began:

At least 12 rockets fired into #Israel since cease-fire began at 9pm, police say #Gaza #Jpost

Reuters reports this news too.

Update: Keep up! The Times of Israel now reports 20 rockets, in the past 3 hours.

That’s a rate of 6.67 rockets per hour.

During Operation Pillar of Cloud (4pm 14th Nov – 9pm 20th Nov), 1506 rockets were fired in 149 hours, at a rate of 10.1 rockets per hour.

Through this ceasefire, Israel has reduced the hourly rate of rockets by 34%.

How reassuring for the citizens of the South!
