(Worthy News) - Militants fired five rockets from Gaza into Israel early Sunday, the Israeli military said, following a day of Palestinian mass protests along the Israel-Gaza perimeter fence. Despite the rocket fire, the Kerem Shalom and Erez border crossings - which have been closed since last Monday when a Gaza rocket destroyed a house in central Israel - were reopened on Sunday morning.

The rocket attack is believed to be in response to the deaths of four Palestinians, including three teenagers, who were killed in clashes with Israeli soldiers.

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said Israeli tanks struck several Hamas observation posts inside Gaza, in response to the rocket fire, aimed at the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel. No casualties were reported from the rockets and no Palestinian group claimed responsibility. [ Source: Ynet News (Read More...) ]
