BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Three rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Wednesday, causing no injuries or damage, the Israeli military said.
The rocket attacks come hours after Israel bombed the northern Gaza Strip, injuring seven Palestinians in what an Israeli military spokesman called a "counter terror operation" that did not hit its target.
The rockets were fired from Gaza towards Hof Ashkelon and the Shaar HaNegev regional council, the Israeli military said in a statement.
"One rocket hit the Erez Crossing compound," the statement added.
The Israeli bombing occurred during a Gaza City press conference announcing a major reconciliation deal between the Palestinian Liberation Organization and Hamas.
