Israeli army bombs Gaza after rocket fire


The Palestinian health ministry said there were no immediate reports of injuries.

The rockets fell in open space near the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council, causing no casualties or damage.

The Israel occupation Air Force struck in the Gaza Strip early morning on Tuesday after a rocket launched from Gaza exploded in south Israel lat night.

The rocket, which was sacked a few hours before the strikes, landed in an open area close to Israeli border communities without causing any injuries.

Last March a rocket fired from Gaza struck an open area in Israeli territory, causing no injuries.

Mueller and Comey not as close as Trump and others suggest
Trump said that he never made tapes of his private conversations with Comey - doubling down on a tweet he'd sent a day earlier . The president's tweets on Thursday left open the possibility that the conversations may have been taped without his knowledge.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a statement that Israel claimed the rocket was sacked from Gaza to escalating tensions that is Israel's risky and known game.

Missiles and rockets are periodically fired at Israel, generally by hardline Islamist groups opposed to Hamas.

The fire came as Gaza is coping with a spiraling crisis since Israel has decreased the electricity it provides for the besieged Palestinian enclave after the Palestinian National Authority said it will pay only 70 percent of Gaza's electricity bill.

The Israeli military frequently bombs the Gaza Strip, with civilians being the main target of such attacks.

Israel holds Gaza's Hamas rulers responsible for all fire out of the seaside strip — even rockets launched by any of the various militant groups challenging Hamas.
