A rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Friday evening, less than a day after three of Hamas’s tunnel and rocket experts were killed in a clash with IDF troops east of Khan Younis, just inside the Gaza Strip. Five soldiers were injured in the clash.
The rocket hit in an open space in the Eshkol region and exploded on impact.
No casualties or damage were reported, and the Code Red alert did not sound before the explosion.
Four members of Hamas’s armed wing, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, were killed in the clash Thursday, among them the three experts.
