Tensions on Israel-Gaza border escalate as three more rockets fired
No injuries reported after three Qassam rockets hit southern Israel; violence across the border escalated on Thursday with IAF air strikes killing at least two people.
Three rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip on Saturday morning, yet landed in open spaces and caused no injuries or damage.
On Friday, a Qassam landed in an open area in Hof Ashkelon, following IAF strikes in Gaza on Thursday.
Earlier Friday morning, a rocket also fell in the Negev area of southern Israel. There were no reports of damage, or wounded, according to an Army Radio report.
Violence across the Israeli-Gaza border escalated on Thursday with IAF air strikes killing at least two people and Palestinian militants firing rockets deep into southern Israel on Friday.
Since the IAF air strikes Thursday, seven rockets were fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip. All of them landed in open areas, and no damage or wounded were reported.
Early on Friday, Palestinian medical officials said an Israeli air strike hit a Hamas training camp in Gaza City, sending shrapnel flying into nearby houses, killing one civilian and wounding 13 others, mostly women and children. The Israeli military confirmed the air strike early Friday had been carried out.
