The Israel Defense Forces publishes a video showing what it says is a failed rocket launch from the Gaza Strip last night, that apparently killed several Palestinian children.
The video shows a barrage of rockets launched from the coastal enclave at Israel, and one which falls short.
Initial reports from Gaza claimed an Israeli strike in the Jabaliya refugee camp had killed seven civilians, including four children.
But the IDF says it struck a rocket launching site at a different location in Jabaliya earlier in the evening, and wasn’t carrying out operations there at the time of the blast, and that detection systems had shown the rocket launch and then explode inside the refugee camp.
