No Injuries Reported After Rockets Fired from Gaza into Israel
SDOT NEGEV, Israel, June 3 (UPI) — No injuries were reported Wednesday when at least two rockets fired from Gaza landed in Israel.
The rockets were fired from Al-Shati in the Gaza Strip around 11 p.m. local time, one landing in an open area in Sdot Negev.
Israeli forces were searching for any other rockets that might have fallen in the area.
Sdot Negev Regional Council head Tamir Idan told YnetNews.com he was in contact with Israel Defense Forces “in order to see whether we should prepare for an escalation, or this was an isolated incident.
“Each escalation must be met with force,” he said. “I hope this time the IDF strikes in a way the other side understands this front cannot be opened. The residents hope for vacation time this summer, and not like last year.”
The rocket fire comes a week after a similar incident in which a rocket landed near Gan Yavne in Israel. It was the first time a rocket has been fired from Gaza into Israel since the 50 days of fighting that took place in July and August 2014.
