Gaza: Israel carries out strikes in response to missile attack on school.

(Gaza)  Yesterday evening a rocket launched from Gaza struck a school, in the city of  Sderot. The rocket, which did not explode, whilst causing damage resulted in no injuries . Thankfully most students had gone home for the weekend, but several people were still inside the school at the time

A few hours later another missile was launched from Gaza at the  small community of  Nirim but this was intercepted by the Iron dome missile system. Unfortunately due to the very close proximity of Gaza to Sderot not much warning can be given for missiles launched agaisnt it.

In response the IDF struck several targets inside Gaza during the night
