The Israeli Air Force took to the skies over Gaza shortly after midnight on Saturday night in response to the continuation of rocket and mortar fire and balloon bombings aimed at Jewish communities from the enclave this weekend.
Even as Israeli forces were attacking Hamas terrorist positions, however, terrorists launched two rockets from Gaza at southern Israel. Both launches failed to clear the border.
Earlier in the evening, one rocket was launched from the enclave at around 9:10 pm. The rocket exploded in an open field in the Shaar HaNegev Regional Council district. No one was physically injured and no property damage was reported.
