Rockets fired from Gaza Strip hit southern Israel: Israeli army

March 11, 2016 11:05 P.M. (Updated: March 12, 2016 2:57 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli security reported that rockets launched from the Gaza Strip fell near the Israeli city of Sderot on Friday evening.

Israeli army spokesman Peter Lerner reported on social media that sirens were sounding in towns in the Negev desert.

At least three rockets landed near Sderot. The Israeli army said the rockets caused no injuries or material damage.

Israeli authorities hold Gaza's de facto leaders Hamas responsible for all attacks against Israeli targets coming from the Gaza Strip.

However, Hamas has not claimed responsibility for any rocket attacks since Israel’s devastating war in Gaza in 2014, and the movement has attempted to clamp down on armed activity by smaller political groups in the territory.
