      Gaza terrorists launched a rocket at the town of Sderot on Sunday evening. The rocket hit an unpopulated area and did not cause injury.

      Earlier in the day terrorists fired two rockets at the city of Netivot. Those rockets hit unpopulated areas as well.

      The attacks come as Israelis celebrate the week-long Passover holiday.

      Gaza’s many terror organizations have been relatively inactive in recent weeks, but have launched occasional attacks, demonstrating that they do not consider themselves bound by the “calm” Hamas declared after Israel’s last counter-terror activities in the area.

      Sunday’s attacks are thought to be linked to an incident Saturday night in which a group of terrorists attempting to fire a rocket were fired on by IDF soldiers. Two of the terrorists were wounded.
