Speaking at Sunday's Cabinet meeting, Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz confirmed reports that the Islamic Jihad attempted to fire a Grad-type Katyusha rocket from the Gaza Strip at Israel on Friday.
Islamic Jihad had released a statement Friday saying that they had actually fired a Grad rocket at the southern Israeli costal town of Ashkelon, but the IDF had denied that a rocket was indeed fired.
Mofaz also noted there was a decrease in the number of Kassam rockets fired at Israel from Gaza.
According to the Defense Minister, there were currently 15 specific terror warnings as well as 70 warnings in which security forces had partial information on.
