Assessment: Gaza Rocket Not a Sign of Escalation


The security establishment estimated, Monday morning, that a missile launched by terrorists in Gaza, Sunday evening, does not indicate, at this time, that things are heating up in the area. The rocket did not land in Israeli territory.

More than a month has passed since the end of the Pillar of Defense counter-terror campaign and, aside from missile launchings in the hours immediately after the Egyptian-negotiated cease fire, the lone incident was the infiltration of a terrorist to Sde Avraham, which resulted in his death.
