The attack came after two rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza landed in open territory near Ashkelon and Ashdod on Thursday morning.

Wednesday night saw Islamic Jihad terrorists launch more than 40 rockets on southern Israel in the largest flare-up of Gazan terrorism since 2012.

The Air Force responded to Wednesday's attack by striking 29 targets across the Gaza Strip.

A Palestinian official said Thursday that Egypt was attempting to broker a ceasefire between the sides.
