Israeli army: intercepting a missile fired from Gaza

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — On Friday evening, the Israeli army announced that a missile had been launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israeli settlements adjacent to the Strip.

The army said in a statement: “Follow-up to reports of the sirens sounding in the Gaza envelope. The talk is about the launching of a missile shell from the Gaza Strip, where it was intercepted by air defenses.”

Shortly before the army’s announcement, sirens sounded in the “Gaza envelope” and Sderot areas.

This comes in light of the tension witnessed by the borders between Israel and the Gaza Strip during the past few days.

Twelve Palestinians were injured today, during the Israeli army’s assault on peaceful demonstrators against the alleged American “Deal of the Century”, near the border fence in the eastern Gaza Strip.

Earlier today, the Israeli army said it had bombed a site in the southern Gaza Strip in response to the firing of 3 mortar shells from the strip.

The Ministry of Health in Gaza did not report any injuries.

In turn, the private Hebrew channel (13) stated that the Israeli army is threatening to respond harshly if rocket and balloon bombs continue to be launched from the Gaza Strip.
