Gaza terrorists fired two missiles at Israeli civilians Wednesday evening. One missile struck Israeli territory, while the other seems to have landed short.

The 'Color Red' siren went off in several areas near Gaza, warning residents to head for shelterThe sirens sounded in Sderot, Hof Ashkelon, Yad Mordechai, Gevim and other locations.

An Israeli warplane struck the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday wounding six people, one very seriously, the territory's Hamas rulers said.

The raid came as thousands took to the streets of Gaza City to celebrate the announcement by Hamas and the PLO of an agreement to form a unity government to end seven years of divided administration. There seems to be no direct connection between the two developments.
