Israel Bombs Gaza Targets After Rocket Attack


israel-gaza-rocketIsraeli aircraft early this morning attacked targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket attack on the Sdot Negev region last night. There were no initial Palestinian reports of casualties.

The IAF targeted a “terror installation” and a weapons warehouse in the southern Gaza Strip, the IDF spokesperson’s office said, noting that the targets had been hit. There were no reports of injuries or damage in the rocket attack Motzoei Shabbos that disrupted celebrations in honor of Lag Ba’omer.

Recent weeks have seen a surge in rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, after several months of relative quiet along the border in the wake of Israel’s November 2012 bombing campaign against Hamas and other armed factions in Gaza.
