Israel and the Hamas-controlled Gaza strip moved closer to war for the first time since 2014, as terrorists fired several rockets and mortars into Israel from the Palestinian territory.
Sirens wailed in southern Israel early Shabbos morning, warning residents of an incoming rocket. One landed in an open field, causing no injuries.
The Israeli Air Force responded by striking targets in Gaza.
Palestinian attacks from Gaza intensified after Israel uncovered an attack tunnel Thursday beneath the border.
