Two rockets launched from the Gaza strip exploded near the Israel border fence on Saturday night. Warning sirens were not sounded. No injuries or damage was reported. Israeli security forces are investigating the area to determine if the rockets fell within Israeli territory. 

Tensions have been high in the area after a Palestinian toddler was killed and three members of his family were injured in a deadly arson attack on their home by suspected far-right extremists early Friday morning, in the village of Duma, in the northern area of the West Bank, outside the city of Nablus.

In the violence that followed between Palestinians and security forces, the IDF killed one Palestinian by the Gaza border and another just outside Ramallah.

Last month, Gazan terrorists fired a single rocket at southern Israel, that prompted a response by the Israel Air Force that targeted a rocket launcher in the northern part of the coastal territory. 

"Hamas is the address and it bears responsibility," the IDF said at the time.

A group that sympathizes with al-Qaida, who have defied Hamas, have been blamed for strikes on Israel over the past months, none of which caused injuries or damage.
