14 rockets fired at Israel, Palestinian killed in airstrike

June 30, 2014 11:35 A.M. (Updated: July 1, 2014 9:45 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Fourteen rockets were fired at southern Israel from the Gaza Strip overnight after an Israeli airstrike killed one Palestinian and injured at least three others late Sunday.

At least 14 rockets were fired at southern Israel, with one causing damage to a residential property in the Sdot Negev regional council, Israel's army said.

The Iron Dome intercepted two rockets, an army spokeswoman added.

Israeli warplanes struck 12 targets overnight, which the army said were being used for "terrorist activity". One man was killed and three others injured in the attacks.

On Friday, two Palestinians were killed in an Israeli airstrike on a car near Gaza City.

The cross-border violence comes amid increased tensions as an Israeli military campaign across the West Bank enters its third week.

The campaign, which is the largest deployment since the early 2000s, has left eight Palestinians dead, more than 130 wounded, and more than 560 detained.
