OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: The Israeli military says militants in the Gaza Strip have fired one rocket at Israel after two days of intense exchanges.
The military says the rocket exploded in southern Israel Friday morning but caused no damage or injuries.
It says Gaza militants have fired 70 rockets at Israel since Wednesday. That figure included 18, which were fired after the Islamic Jihad announced Thursday that it would observe a cease-fire.
Palestinian group from Gaza had fired most of the rockets in the latest escalation.
Israel’s military says its aircraft hit several “terror sites” in Gaza overnight in retaliation to the rockets.
Nobody has been killed on either side.
The latest barrage from Gaza was the heaviest since an eight-day Israeli military offensive in 2012 tried to end almost daily rocket attacks.
