Gaza rocket hits Bethlehem-area home before ceasefire, no injuries

Aug. 5, 2014 10:08 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 5, 2014 8:11 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A rocket fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip hit a house near Bethlehem before an agreed-upon ceasefire went into effect at 8:00 a.m., a Ma'an reporter said.

The rocket, fired with several others that fell in open areas in Israel or were intercepted, struck the home of the Attoun family in the West Bank town of Beit Sahour.

No injuries were reported, but the rocket caused damages to the upper floor of a building.

The electricity network in the area was also damaged.

Some 17 rockets were fired at Israel just minutes before the three-day ceasefire between Israeli forces and Gaza militants came into effect, an army statement said.

Palestinian militant groups in Gaza have launched thousands of rockets at Israel since the beginning of its deadly offensive on Gaza.

The rockets usually land in open areas in southern Israel, causing no damage, or are intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

Three civilians have died in Israel from Palestinian rocket fire since the start of the Israeli assault.

Israeli airstrikes, artillery, and other attacks on Gaza have killed some 1,867 people and injured nearly 10,000.
