Rockets fired by Muslim terrorists from Gaza at Israeli civilians in southern Israel
BREAKING: Rockets were fired by Muslim terrorists in Gaza towards southern Israel.
Code Red rocket alert sirens sounded in Nachal Oz and Alumim, in the Sha’ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev Regional Councils.
According to first reports, two rockets launched by Muslim terrorists from northern Gaza fell short and exploded inside Gaza.
Muslim terrorists fired five rockets from Gaza into Israel overnight following a day of mass riots along the security border fence.
The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the rocket attack.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said Israeli tanks struck several Hamas terror posts inside Gaza, in response to the rocket fire at the Eshkol Regional Council.
Despite the rocket fire, the Kerem Shalom and Erez border crossing point- which have been closed since last Monday when Muslim terrorists launched a rocket that destroyed a house in central Israel, were reopened.
In addition, the IDF has decided to allow the expansion of the fishing zone for Gazan fishermen.
The rocket fire threatened to undermine Egyptian-mediated efforts to cement a ceasefire arrangement between Israel and the terror group that rules Gaza.
Hamas terror group deputy political chief Saleh al-Arouri said Saturday that Israel and Hamas could sign a long-term ceasefire arrangement “within days.”
According to Arab reports, the Islamic Jihad, Saif Al-Islam and Nasser Salah Al-Din Brigades terror groups refused to accept the agreement between Hamas and Israel.
