Just one hour in the morning, just hours after the end of Shabbat, sirens sounded in Sderot and thousands of inhabitants had to run from the homes to take shelter in the middle of the night. Two of the rockets fired from Gaza were intercepted by the “Iron Dome” defence system, but one hit the garden of a house. One man was injured by broken glass and several others suffered minor injuries as they ran into their bunkers.

This is the latest increase in tensions around Gaza, which began about a week ago with attacks by terrorist balloons and is now seeing rocket attacks and clashes on the border. Last week, some 800 Palestinian militants attacked Israeli border guards and threw incendiary devices at them. Two attackers were injured, while the Israeli army reported no casualties.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) responded the same night with attacks on Hamas positions, after attacks only a few hours earlier from increasing ballooning terror, which had started 19 fires in southern Israel on Saturday alone and over 100 in the last week. The air force reportedly destroyed Hamas military bases and parts of the terrorist group’s infrastructure.

In addition to the IAF attacks from the air, Israel had already closed its border crossing into Gaza a few days ago and now also the Gaza fishing zone. It is also reported that the monthly transfer of 30 million dollars from Qatar to Gaza has been banned.
