The Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council in southern Israel announced one private home was damaged by rocket fire from Gaza on Saturday.

There were no casualties, though a few people suffered panic attacks after the event and were treated on site.

Meanwhile, Hamas released a statement accusing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of attempting to escalate the situation in the Gaza Strip in order "to avoid allegations of corruption."

The IAF struck six Gaza targets on Saturday, including a Hamas terror tunnel, in response to the detonation of an explosive device on the Gaza border earlier in the day that wounded four IDF soldiers.
