Palestinians fire rockets at Israel

There has been silence for almost a month – now hardline Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have once again fired rockets across the border towards Israel.

Militant Palestinians in the Gaza Strip fired rockets into the Israeli border area on Saturday evening for the first time in nearly a month. The Israeli military said that the missile defense system had not been activated.

There were no reports of injuries or damage to property. It was initially unclear which group was responsible for the attack. Most recently, several rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel in early November.

According to The Times of Israel, the Israeli army carried out airstrikes against Gaza in the early hours of Sunday morning. The Israel Defense Forces said in a brief statement that they would attack Gaza in retaliation for Saturday night’s rocket attack.

Two members of the militant Palestinian group Islamic Jihad were killed during an Israeli military operation in the West Bank on Thursday night. Islamic Jihad is particularly active in the Gaza Strip and frequently launches rocket attacks from there.

The Israeli army launched a large-scale military operation against Islamic Jihad in early August. According to the military, militant Palestinians then fired more than 1,000 rockets at Israeli cities.
