Code Red sirens sounded in southern Israel Friday night following a rocket launched from Gaza. The rocket exploded in an open area, causing no casualties or damage.
This is the fourth rocket fired from Gaza at Israeli civilians this week.
On Tuesday, a barrage of rockets was fired by Muslim terrorists in Gaza towards the city of Sderot. In response, Israeli fighter jets carried out retaliatory strikes targeting terror infrastructure in Gaza.
The latest escalation with Gaza began two weeks ago when an Israeli strike eliminated a top Islamic Jihad terrorist, Baha Abu al-Ata and brought a wave of rocket fire into Israel in response.
