Ynet – The rocket fire from Gaza continued on Thursday night but the Palestinians are saying that the truce has been in effect for a few days. The deputy secretary-general of Islamic Jihad, Ziad Nakhleh, discussed the recent bout of rocket fire on Israel and said that his organization was committed to the ceasefire agreement. He noted that the latest rocket fire on Israel was the act of individuals.

Another rocket exploded in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council on Friday morning, but no injuries or damages were reported.
