BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Rockets fired from Gaza landed in areas surrounding Bethlehem and Hebron on Saturday, witnesses said.

Locals said several rockets landed in an area near the illegal settlement of Efrat south of Bethlehem.

Israel's army said one rocket landed in an "urban area in Hebron," while two others struck the area of Bethlehem.

There were no reports of injuries or damage.

Shortly before the rockets hit, air raid sirens sounded in Jerusalem, just a few miles north of Bethlehem, before at least two explosions were heard.

Palestinian security sources told AFP one rocket hit an inhabited area of Hebron, and another struck a house in the nearby village of Sair, to the south.

There were no immediate details on the third rocket.

Israeli air strikes Gaza have killed over 130 Palestinians since late Monday.

Rocket fire from Gaza has caused no Israeli deaths, but has seriously wounded two people.

Apparently the PA is asking Netanyahu to protect Palestinian cities from Hamas rockets. How ironic.

No Israelis death is because Israel has more bomb shelter than New York has underground subway stations.

What would be ironic is a rocket from Gaza striking a Palestinian home in Bethlehem or Hebron or anywhere else in Israel.

3., Actually, Fritz, true irony would be a rocket from Gaza hitting Al-Aqsa. If it happened, Hamas would survive for about 45 minutes.

# The truth is Outlier (4) if a rocket from Gaza hit Al Aqsa, it would be what is termed in the west 'an act of God', so Hamas would be just fine.
