Light damage caused to neighborhood in southern city from rockets; IDF reports RPG launched toward border forces, warning shots fired in return.
 
Terrorists in Gaza fired 7 rockets into Israel on Monday morning, the IDF Spokesperson's office said.

The first 3 projectiles struck uninhabited areas in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council and set off sirens and caused no damage.

Another two rockets were launched and caused light damage in Sderot.

In addition, the IDF reported that early Monday morning an RPG was launched toward IDF forces on the border but caused no injuries.

IDF later shot warning shots into Gaza. The shots caused no reported injuries inside Gaza.

Last week, Israel Air Force jets struck five terror targets in the Gaza Strip, following rocket attacks on southern Israel the previous night. The IAF hit sites in northern and central Gaza, including two Hamas posts, Palestinian media reported.

Also last week, a rocket siren went off in the Sha’ar Hanegev region, but an army spokeswoman later said no projectiles were detected in Israeli territory.

Last month, the air force stuck 29 targets across the Gaza Strip in response to Islamic Jihad rocket attack on the South. More than 30 rockets – fired in simultaneous barrages from northern and southern Gaza – exploded in Israeli territory. The Iron Dome anti-rocket battery stationed in Sderot shot down three projectiles over the town. The bombardment of the western Negev in March marked the largest flare-up of Gazan terrorism since 2012.
