The Israel Defense Forces released a video on Sunday evening showing militants in the Gaza Strip in the process of firing rockets at Israel.

The video was released just hours after Israel Air Force troops killed four Palestinian gunners at a launching pad in northerern Gaza.

The video shows militants positioning a rocket launcher and distancing themselves from it before opening fire.

Meanwhile, a Qassam rocket fired by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip struck a residential yard in the southern town of Sderot on Sunday, leaving one person with light shrapnel wounds. Several other people were treated for shock.

This was the third rocket to hit the Negev on Sunday, as violence between Israel and the coastal territory continued for a second week. Some 17 rockets and mortar shells hit southern Israel over the weekend, including four advanced Grad-type missiles.
