The rocket fire from Gaza continued Friday night, as at least six rockets exploded in the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel.

All rockets exploded in open areas, causing no physical injuries or damages.

The latest attack brings the total number of rockets fired from Gaza on Friday to at least 23. Eight rockets were fired on Friday afternoon alone, including two that were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system over Ofakim.

Gaza terrorists have continued to fire rockets, ignoring the IDF's ultimatum to Hamas to stop the rocket fire within 48 hours or Israel would launch an attack on Gaza.

On Friday evening, Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft struck three terrorist targets in southern Gaza, with the IDF saying that the army would “continue to act decisively and as long as necessary until quiet is restored.”

The rocket fire continues amid reports that Egypt is mediating a potential ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
