A terrorist rocket launched from Gaza struck a kindergarten building in Israel on Friday evening. Israel Hayom reports that the IDF retaliated with fire on Gaza terror targets, while thankfully no injuries were reported in Israel:

A rocket fired by Gaza Strip-based terrorists hit a kindergarten in the southern city of Sderot on Friday. This was the first time in over 18 months that the city was hit by projectiles fired from the coastal enclave.

Three sirens rattled southern Israel on Friday evening, at 6:05 p.m., 7:09 p.m. and 9:55 p.m., alerting residents to incoming rocket fire.

The IDF said all three rockets appeared to have been aimed at Sderot. The first projectile was intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system deployed in the area. It is believed the second rocket hit an open area in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council. The third rocket apparently hit the yard of the kindergarten and also caused some damage to the building...
