Four Kassam rockets were launched into Israel Thursday night. The rockets set off warning sirens in Sderot and Ashkelon, and exploded in open areas.

There were no reports of casualties or damage in the latest attacks from the Strip.

On Tuesday three Islamic Jihad operatives were killed in an IAF airstrike in northern Gaza after firing two rockets into southern Israel. The rockets caused no injuries.

Tensions have been high since Israeli naval commandos boarded a flotilla carrying hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists to Gaza on Monday, causing a violent clash. Nine activists were said to have been killed in the incident, and several IDF commandos were wounded.
