Gaza terrorists on Saturday night attempted to attack southern Israel with a rocket, but missed their target and the rocket exploded on the Palestinian side of the border.

There were no reports of injuries or damages on either side. Sirens did not sound on the Israeli side of the border.

Rocket fire has continued to “trickle” from Gaza onto Israel, the last attack having taken place at the beginning of the month, when terrorists from Gaza fired two rockets, causing no physical injuries or damages.

In response, the Israeli air forces attacked Hamas sites in Gaza.

In mid-January, Israeli Air Force (IAF) fighter jets launched an airstrike against a terror cell in northern Gaza.

The cell engaged in planting explosives on the security fence targeting soldiers patrolling the border with Gaza. According to the IDF, direct strikes on the terrorists were identified.

Hamas later threatened Israel over the attack, saying Israel was “playing with fire”.
