Gaza Rocket Explodes in Southern Israel

Gaza Rocket Explodes in Southern Israel

In February, Israeli security forces thwarted an attempt to smuggle hundreds of drones and other banned items into the Gaza Strip through the postal service. Two people were seriously wounded and another sustained light injuries, local media reported.

A military spokesperson said in a statement that the strikes were carried out in retaliation for a rocket fired from the Palestinian enclave toward Israel on Tuesday night.

According to the IDF, the rocket was launched from Gaza and landed in an open area, causing no injuries or damage. "We will not allow Gaza to be turned into a testing field for Israeli ammunition".

Vatican urges Venezuela to suspend constitutional revision
Shortly after, the new assembly announced Tarek William Saab, who faces US sanctions, was the new Attorney General of Venezuela. It says the constituent assembly is a way for the president to cling to power.

One of the injured was a 26-year-old man who was hit in the head by shrapnel.

He said that Israeli F16 warplanes bombed a site northwest of Gaza City and another to the west of the city causing damage to both sites and to civilian homes nearby. Although no group has claimed responsibility for the rocket attack, Israel holds Hamas responsible for any rockets being fired from Gaza.

Despite the tensions over Jerusalem's Temple Mount this summer, there have been only a few instances of rocket fire from Gaza landing in Israel.
