Rocket Fired at Negev; IDF Strikes in Gaza
Rocket explodes in open area in Sdot Negev Regional Council; no injuries reported; Israeli aircraft retaliate with attacks on terror facility, arms cache in southern Strip
A rocket fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza late Saturday night toward the Sdot Negev Regional Council exploded in an open area, near a local community, as Israelis were celebrating Lag B’Omer. There were no reports of injury or damage.
The exact landing site of the rocket has yet to be located. A few hours after the rocket attack, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit announced that Israeli aircraft attacked overnight Sunday a terror facility and a weapons cache in south Gaza. Direct hits were confirmed. The army said the aerial strikes came in response to the rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled territory.
