A Rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck Sderot late on Thursday night as sirens wailed along border communities in the South.
Following the sirens, residents reported hearing explosions. It was later found that a rocket directly impacted a building in Sderot. There were no injuries.
The IDF confirmed that sirens had sounded and identified one launch from Gaza into Israeli territory
This comes as Israel braces for an escalation in violence on the Gaza border as the usual Friday protests commence with thousands of Gazans expected to protest and riot along the border fence, burning tires, hurling stones and marbles, and throwing grenades and improvised explosive devices (some military grade) towards troops.
The Great March of Return border protests have seen more than 500,000 people violently demonstrating along the security fence demanding an end to the 12-year-long blockade.
