Military: rocket fired from Gaza into southern Israel
JERUSALEM — The Israeli military said Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket into southern Israel on Saturday evening.
The rocket fell and exploded in an open area, triggering warning sirens in the community of Nahal Oz east of Gaza City.
No casualties or damage were reported. The Israeli military typically responds to such rocket fire with airstrikes in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, raising the possibility of further violence just before the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
