Palestinian sources have reported to IAF strikes on the Gaza strip Saturday night according to Yedioth Ahronoth. No injuries have been reported as yet, but the sources said that several structures in southern Gaza and a tunnel in the eastern section of Rafah have been damaged.
A rocket landed in the southern Eshkol Regional Council on Saturday night, according to Maariv. This was the second such attack of the evening, following two Kassam rockets that fell near Ashkelon earlier. Neither attack resulted in injuries or damage.
Saturday’s rocket fire from Gaza is the latest in a relentless barrage from the Hamas-controlled region over the past two weeks. Kassam rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza on Thursday, prompting an Israeli Air Force strike in response.
IDF Arab media spokesman Avichay Adraee tweeted in Arabic shortly after Saturday’s incident: “25 rockets fired into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip since the beginning of February. To be clear: we will not tolerate this situation.”
Over 40 rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza since the beginning of 2012. While injuries and damage have been minimal, the Israeli communities around Gaza remain on alert.
