Rocket fired from Gaza damages road in southern Israel


JERUSALEM (JTA) — A rocket fired from Gaza that landed on a major road in southern Israel caused significant damage.

The Wednesday morning attack is the third incident of rockets fired on southern Israel from Gaza in the past five days. No injuries have been reported.

Israeli officials have said that since the formation earlier this month of a unity government of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party and Hamas, the terrorist organization that runs the Gaza Strip, attacks emanating from Gaza are the responsibility of Abbas and his government.

Since the start of this year, more than 140 rockets fired from Gaza Strip have hit Israel, the Israeli military said.
