Five rockets were fired Friday night from the Gaza Strip at Israel. Israeli detection systems detected the launches and identified two projectiles that crossed the border, the other three exploded on the Gaza side of the border. IDF forces are searching for the sites where the two rockets that made it cross the border exploded.

Rocket sirens sounded in Israeli communities near the Gaza border. The Israeli army said it is searching the area.

The IDF responded with airstrikes on Hamas targets.

On December 17, a rocket fired from the enclave exploded inside the Gaza Strip, near the border, according to the IDF.
