IDF sending reinforcements to Gaza border after rocket attack

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

The Israel Defense Forces says it is sending reinforcements to the Gaza Division out of concern for an escalation of violence there.

The move comes after a rocket attack earlier this morning and ongoing threats from terror groups in the Strip.

A military spokesperson says the elite Maglan Unit and two companies from the IDF Officers School will be sent to the area.
