Rockets launched into southern Israel


Gaza Strip terrorists launched rockets into Israel.

There were at least two barrages of Kassam rockets before dawn on Friday, Israeli media reported, and the firing of a longer range Grad missile.

No injuries or damage were reported.

Kassams have a range of about 10 kilometers and have reached Israeli towns like Sderot. Grads have a longer range of up to 25 kilometers.

The launchings come after a number of Israeli raids targeting al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists, themselves at war with Gaza’s Hamas rulers.

The al-Qaeda affiliates had warned of retaliatory attacks against Israel.
