i24 News – A rocket launched from the Gaza Strip damaged a home in southern Israel on Wednesday night, in the second such attack this week.

A red alert warning was given to Sderot and the surrounding communities of Ibim and Nir Am in the Gaza envelope.

One launch was detected, causing minor damage to a house and a vehicle, police said. No wounds were reported, although several patients were treated for anxiety.

The launch comes after a flag march through Jerusalem’s Old City, a flashpoint event.
