Rocket fired from Gaza falls short of Israeli border

A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel fails to clear the border fence and lands inside the enclave, the army says.

The rocket launch triggered alarms in the Israeli community of Netiv Ha’asara, north of the Strip.

The community is hosting a night-time swimming event, which was interrupted by the attack and sent dozens of children rushing to bomb shelters.
