Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip on Monday fired seven rockets into southern Israel. One of the projectiles narrowly missed a synagogue packed with worshippers on the final day of Passover.
Police said that at least two of the rockets landed in the battered southern Israel town of Sderot. One caused damage to a residential street just outside a local synagogue.
Israel responded with targeted attacks on at least two Hamas installations in Gaza.
Addressing a post-Passover celebration, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon issued a stern warning to Hamas:
“Even today, our enemies rise up to destroy us, and we see that the IDF responded immediately, to send a message to the other side: this will not be overlooked. We hope that Hamas and other [terror] organizations get the hint, accept the message and keep Gaza calm. If not, they should know that we will act on it.”
