Terrorists in Gaza fired a rocket at the Sderot area on Thursday evening, ending four months of quiet and triggering air raid sirens in the area. The projectile exploded harmlessly in an open, uninhabited area, the IDF said, adding that security forces were searching for its remnants.
In response, the IDF struck a terror target in northern Gaza to the earlier rocket attack, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said on Thursday shortly before midnight.
It was not immediately clear which organization launched the attack. The assessment within the army is that a small Gazan terror group, not Hamas, fired the rocket.
Following the incident, the IDF announced that Gazan worshippers will not be able to go to Jerusalem for Friday prayers at al-Aksa Mosque this week.
Yesh Atid MK Haim Jelin, formerly head of the Eshkol Regional Council near Gaza, said that for the residents of the South, Israel’s 67th Independence Day “remains a day of no hope.”
