Terrorists launched rocket at Israel from Gaza, hit home of Hamas official

A truck loaded with supplies enters the Gaza Strip from Israel through the Kerem Shalom Crossing

In a visit to the jittery southern Israeli city on Thursday, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said, "The fact that we're here this morning in Sderot... shows everyone that they can remain calm and relax".

Rocket fire slammed down into southern Israel on Wednesday evening for a fourth consecutive day. "'In any case, I have instructed the IDF to be prepared for any scenario". In a statement, the Israeli army said it had targeted three Hamas military facilities in different parts of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

The person in charge of overseeing Israel's defense establishment had a reassuring word for the residents of Sderot who are once again under rocket attack from Gaza: Relax.

The military says it struck a Hamas military compound in southern Gaza early on Wednesday.

Israel says it holds Hamas, the militant group that controls Gaza, responsible for all fire originating in the territory. "A rocket that was launched a short time ago from Gaza hit a house in Beit Hanoun". Two Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli troops in protests along the security fence after, the IDF said, they repeatedly refused to heed calls and warnings to keep away from the barrier.
