The Israel Defense Forces believes the latest deadly explosion in the northern Gaza Strip is likely a failed rocket launch.

According to an initial probe, the IDF didn’t strike in the Jabaliya refugee camp area recently.

Earlier, Palestinian media reports said at least two people were killed and eight wounded after an explosion at a home in the camp.

According to IDF estimates, 120 rockets fired from Gaza since Friday landed short in the Strip.
