For the first time in a month, a rocket has been fired at Israel from the Palestinian Gaza Strip. The missile was shot „towards civilians in southern Israel,“ the Israeli army said yesterday evening. According to media reports, she hit an uninhabited area.
It was the first attack from the Gaza Strip in a month. At the end of February, the Israeli army and the radical Palestinian organization Islamic Jihad had committed violent mutual attacks. The Islamic Jihad fired more than 80 rockets and mortar shells at Israel, which is why the authorities there closed schools near the Gaza Strip, among other things.
Islamic Jihad described its attacks as retaliation for the killing of one of its fighters on the Gaza-Israel border. Israeli soldiers shot the 27-year-old because he said the army wanted to plant a bomb.
