Unknown Palestinian gunmen launched in the noon of September 11 three rockets from the Gaza Strip at the nearby Israeli settlements.
Israeli sources said that the rockets landed in empty areas and farms. No one was reportedly injured or killed as result.
After the attack, the Israeli military wrote on Twitter: “3 rockets were just fired from Gaza to Israel … In response, we struck 2 Hamas posts in Gaza.”
The Shehab Agency confirmed that the Israeli artillery targeted two observation posts of the Hamas Movement north of the area of Beit Lahia.
A day earlier, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was evacuated from a campaign event he was holding in the southern Israeli city of Ashdod as a result of a similar attack. The Israeli Air Force responded with a series of airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.
These repeated incidents show that the situation around Gaza is slowly worsening, despite the fact that both sides are not willing to engage in a large-scale military confrontation.
