Israel hits Gaza in response to rocket fire

Sunday, April 28, 2013 |  Israel Today Staff

Israeli aircraft on Sunday morning bombed two terrorist installations in southern Gaza in response to cross-border rocket fire the night before.

Late Saturday evening, as Israeli families were out enjoying bonfires in celebration of the extra-biblical festival of Lag B'Omer, terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip fired several missiles into southern Israel.

Israelis were sent rushing for local bomb shelters. There were no injuries reported.

The number of rocket attacks from Gaza has been increasing of late, and Israeli military officials vow they will not allow a return to the days before last November's "Operation Pillar of Cloud," when Gaza-based terrorists were bombarding southern Israel on a near daily basis.
