Israel, Gaza trade rocket attacks


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli airstrike retaliating for a rocket fired at Israel hit a target in northern Gaza, killing one Palestinian.

Early Monday morning, Israel’s Air Force struck what Gaza sources are calling a naval police post in Gaza City. Along with the Palestinian killed, four others were injured in the strike, according to reports.

The Kassam rocket fired at southern Israel from Gaza the previous night landed in an open area, causing no casualties or damage, according to reports. The Color Red missile alert system was sounded in Sderot and the surrounding areas.

No Palestinian group claimed responsibility for the rocket attack.
