Rockets fired from Gaza land in Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Two rockets fired from Gaza struck southern Israel a day after Israel’s Air Force hit a terrorist cell preparing to launch rockets at Israel.

The rockets fired from Gaza Sunday morning struck open areas in the city of Netivot. There were no injuries or damage, according to reports. Later Sunday a Kassam rocket struck Sderot, causing no injuries or damage.

On Saturday, Israel’s Air Force struck a Gaza terror cell east of Rafah in southern Gaza that was getting ready to fire rockets at Israel. Two of the terrorists were lightly injured, according to Palestinian reports.

"The Israel Defense Forces will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens and will act against anyone who uses terror against Israel," the IDF said in a statement.  "The Hamas terrorist organization is the address, and it bears the responsibility” for attacks emanating from Gaza.
