The defense establishment is discussing how to respond to the rocket fire that took place this morning (Saturday) from the Gaza Strip towards the Dan Bloc, and the issue is expected to come up for discussion at the political level.

Sources in the defense establishment said that "a response is being considered that will not degenerate the area into escalation but conveys the message that the events on the border and the rocket launches are not acceptable to Israel."



Earlier, Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi conducted a situation assessment on the issue, during which he presented a series of possible courses of action. At the same time, Egypt is pressuring Israel to refrain from a military response to the rocket launch, and the IDF is debating how to respond.

The security incident occurred around 07:00, when two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip and fell into the sea off the coast of Tel Aviv.

No interceptions were made and no alarm was activated.

The media in Gaza published reports that this was a mistake that caused the launch.



This incident comes days after another unusual incident in which a light Israeli was injured in a shooting incident near a fence in the northern Gaza Strip, during maintenance work.

The IDF responded to an incident by firing tanks at Hamas targets, during which three Palestinians were injured.

Sources in the IDF said today that they "connect the shooting incident on the Israeli citizen at the border and the rocket launches.

In both cases, Hamas claims no responsibility.

"It was very difficult for them to restrain the IDF firing at Hamas military positions on the border and the injury of three Palestinian farmers who were standing nearby."



Meanwhile, Southern Command officials told Walla!

After the failure of the efforts to promote the series between Israel and Hamas mediated by Egypt, the Israeli government decided to promote the series directly with the Palestinian public in the Gaza Strip, without holding an orderly discussion on the series with Hamas, and accordingly promote crossings, transit of workers, exports of goods and imports.
