A rocket fired from Gaza toward southern Israel on Friday evening failed to hit its target and exploded within Gazan territory, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said.

Due to the failed launch, a siren was only sounded in open areas.

Last month, the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization fired over 80 rockets at southern Israel before it reportedly asked for a ceasefire.
