Rocket Explodes Near Homes in Sderot

Terror again struck the Holy Land early today when a rocket fired from Gaza exploded in the southern Israeli town of Sderot. Arutz Sheva's Ido Ben Porat reports that the rocket, claimed by an ISIS-affiliated terrorist organization, caused damage to a residential neighborhood:

A rocket fired from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip exploded in the western Negev town of Sderot Wednesday morning.

No physical injuries have been reported, but there was damage to a residential neighborhood and a number of people are being treated for shock. The rocket is said to have exploded in between two homes at around 10:20 a.m.

At 10:19 a.m. warning sirens were activated in the western Negev near the Gaza Strip. Residents reported hearing an explosion shortly thereafter.

Security forces quickly arrived at the scene of the explosion in Sderot, sealing off the area and blocking off nearby roads as sappers verified that the remains of the rocket no longer posed a threat.

A Salafi terror group tied to the ISIS organization claim responsibility for the attack.
