JERUSALEM -- Israel's military says Gaza militants have fired a
military-grade rockets into Israel, causing light damage and no
Militants from inside Gaza regularly fire small rockets they
manufacture themselves and only rarely use military-grade projectiles
such as the relatively powerful Grad launched early on Friday.
None of the armed groups in Hamas-ruled Gaza immediately claimed
responsibility for the attack.
An Israeli airstrike this week killed two senior members of one such
group, the Army of Islam. Another faction released a video in Hebrew
threatening retaliation for their deaths.
Rocket fire from Gaza has sharply declined since Israel's offensive in
the coastal strip ended in early 2009.
