Rockets from Gaza land in Bethlehem, Hebron

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.
