Palestinian armed groups fired two rockets from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel late on Wednesday, causing neither casualties nor damage, the Israeli military said.

“Two rockets fired from Gaza exploded in open fields in the Eshkol region,” an army spokesman told AFP, adding that there were no casualties or damage.

Earlier on Wednesday, a rocket fired from Gaza landed in the Sha’ar Hanegev region. It did not explode or cause any casualties or damage, police said.

The attacks came after two Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip killed one Palestinian and wounded about 20 others late on Tuesday.

The Israeli army said the strikes were against “global jihad” targets in the Palestinian territory who were planning cross-border attacks from neighboring Egypt.
