Terror site in Gaza hit after rocket fired

JERUSALEM, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Israeli jets hit a center for terror operations in southern Gaza before dawn Wednesday in response to a rocket fired at Israel a day earlier, the army said.

The army said the aircraft recorded a direct hit and returned to base safely. The Palestinian Ma'an news agency said one Palestinian was injured in the airstrike.

Palestinians in southern Gaza Tuesday fired a Qassam rocket at southern Israel that exploded in the Sha'ar Hanegev regional council district, causing no reported injuries or damage, the army said.

Fifty-two Qassam rockets and Grad missiles, and six mortar shells were fired at southern Israel last month, the army said, compared with eight rockets and two mortar shells fired in September.

An Israeli soldier patrolling near the Gaza border at noon Tuesday spotted Palestinian terror cell members attempting to plant two bombs near the northern Gaza border fence. Troops fired a tank shell at the perpetrators, and recorded an accurate hit, the army said.
