Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip have landed near the Israeli town of Sderot, following the Tel Aviv regime’s airstrikes on the Palestinian territory.
The rockets landed in an open area on Wednesday. No damage or injuries were reported. The retaliatory rockets came after Israeli warplanes bombarded an open area in northern Gaza on Tuesday. The airstrikes were the first such attacks since a truce ended an eight-day Israeli war on the coastal enclave in November 2012. Israeli Minister for Military Affairs Moshe Yaalon has issued a warning over the rockets fired from Gaza, saying the Tel Aviv regime would respond with a strike. Also on Tuesday, one projectile was fired from Gaza into Israel. Earlier in the day two mortars were fired from the Palestinian territory but they landed without causing damage. Over 160 Palestinians, including women and children, were killed and about 1,200 others injured in the Israeli war on Gaza from November 14 to 21. The Israeli regime and the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire.
