REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JERUSALEM – Palestinian fighters in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket into Israel on Wednesday, but no casualties or damage, police said.

The rocket fell in an open place near the border, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP.

Earlier on Wednesday morning, Israeli aircraft attacked what the military called “a terror activity site in the northern Gaza Strip”.

The air strikes came after Palestinian militants fired rockets on Tuesday night that exploded near a house in southern Israel, causing damage and fear, police said, two days after a quiet period in the cross-border violence.

Sunday, five projectiles from the Gaza Strip hit southern Israel, attacks that are part of cross-border clashes from October 7 when the airstrikes were aimed at two Salafist fighters in the south of the line, of Rafah, killing one and seriously wounding the other.

Five children and three adults were also injured in the attack, which sparked retaliation from Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants who fire rockets into Israel.

The Israeli military said more than 500 rockets hit Israeli territory since the beginning of this year, 40 were fired in the first two weeks of October.
