Israel’s military says two rockets fired from Gaza exploded in the country’s south, causing no injuries.
It said sirens wailed late Wednesday night warning of the incoming rockets.
The Islamic terrorist group Hamas that rules Gaza said terrorists were evacuating their posts in anticipation of an Israeli response.
Rocket fire has mostly subsided since last summer’s war between Hamas and Israel but there has been the occasional incident.
No terrorist group has taken responsibility, but a Gaza group that supports the Islamic State is believed to be behind the attack. It claimed responsibility for a similar attack last week. Hamas, which has ruled Gaza with an iron fist since 2007, sees the competing terror group as a threat.
