JNS.orgFollowing the signing of a unity agreement between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party and the Gaza-based terror group Hamas on Wednesday, five Qassam rockets were launched from Gaza toward Israel, with four failing to reach Israeli territory and the fifth exploding near the Israel-Gaza border fence.

Also on Wednesday, the Israel Defense Forces said it carried out a “counterterrorism operation” in northern Gaza, but that “a hit was not identified.”

“We don’t always hit the target, it happens,” an Israeli security official told Israel Hayom. “But in a vast majority of cases, we hit [the target].”
