In a barrage of dozens of rockets fired from the Gaza Strip, one hit a home in the Negev.

At least 60 rockets were fired at Israel on Wednesday. The home was damaged but no injuries were reported, according to reports.

Earlier Wednesday, an Israeli airstrike killed a terrorist responsible for an attack that left an Israeli civilian dead.

Wednesday afternoon’s targeted attack also seriously injured another terrorist involved in the planning and execution of a cross-border attack two days earlier that killed a civilian construction worker,  the Israel Defense Forces said. The IDF said the two Global Jihad operatives were planning another attack.

The civilian killed Monday was working on the security fence being erected between Israel and Egypt.

Some 50 rockets struck Israel on Tuesday, and several on Monday, in an escalating series of cross-border attacks this week between Israel and alleged Palestinian terrorists.

At least 11 Israeli Border Guard officers have been injured as a result of the attacks.

The Israel Air Force struck what it called “terror activity sites” in Gaza in response to rockets fired on southern Israel.

The Israel Defense Forces said it hit the two sites, one in southern Gaza and one in central Gaza, overnight Saturday after rockets fired from Gaza struck the northwest Negev. No injuries were reported in the rocket attack on the northwest Negev.

Two Israelis were killed and residential areas in southern Israel were damaged last month in rocket attacks that emanated from Gaza.
