Rockets Fired From Gaza at Israel After Hamas Calls for Revenge

Two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel.

One of the rockets fired late Saturday night landed on the Israeli side of the Gaza border fence and the other landed near the border in northern Gaza.

No casualties were reported in the attack, which did not trigger any warning alarms.

The attack comes a day after Hamas, which rules in Gaza, called for revenge on all Israelis for the death of a Palestinian infant after his home was firebombed in what is believed to be an attack by extremist Jews.

The last rocket attack from Gaza occurred on July 16, when a rocket fired from Gaza landed near Ashkelon. In retaliation, Israel Air Force jets fired on what the Israel Defense Forces called in a statement a “terror infrastructure” in central Gaza.
