JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)– Last night, four rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel, two of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome anti-missile system. Israel retaliated destroying five concealed rocket launchers in northern Gaza, one terror activity site in central Gaza and a weapon manufacturing site in southern Gaza.
One of the rockets failed to reach Israel, killing a Palestinian baby and injuring four of her family members.
Since the beginning of Operation Brother's Keeper, over 20 rockets have been launched from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
Earlier this week, a terrorist armed with a grenade was arrested as he managed to infiltrate Israel from the Gaza Strip. It marked the first time in over a year that a terrorist managed to enter Israel from Gaza.
