Two rockets in one day - second rocket fired from Gaza

Two rockets in one day - second rocket fired from Gaza

Israel struck a position of Islamist group Hamas in Gaza on Monday, the army said, hours after a missile was sacked across the border from the Palestinian enclave.

The Israeli army earlier Sunday said the projectile had exploded in mid-air.

"A short while ago, a projectile fired from the Gaza strip hit an open area in the Eshkol regional council". The rocket exploded mid-air.

The Israel Defense Forces said that there were no reported injuries or damages.

Spieth relieved after holding on for Open glory
Spieth's win ends a run of seven consecutive majors going to players who had never previously won one of golf's biggest prizes. Spieth became the second youngest Masters victor ever - behind Woods - in 2015 and broke a host of records along the way.

Gaza-based Islamic terrorists launched a rocket at Israel but caused no injuries or damage.

Because the trajectory was not headed towards a populated area, the Red Alert incoming alert siren did not activate, and most people were not dragged out of their beds unnecessarily, as has happened repeatedly in the past.

Both incidents come amid escalating violence in Jerusalem and the West Bank, where past tensions have often led to conflagrations in the Strip.

Israel has increased its security alert level after at least three Israelis were killed and one injured in a stabbing attack by a 20-year-old Palestinian in the West Bank settlement of Halamish on Friday night. Israel said it was investigating the reports.
