Gaza-based terrorists launched a rocket at southern Israel on Monday in mid-day, setting off alarms at several locations surrounding the Strip.

An Iron Dome defense system intercepted the rocket above the city of Sderot. No injuries or damage were reported.

The Islamic Jihad took responsibility for the attack, stating that it was a response to Israel’s “crimes in Jenin,” an incident on Sunday night in which IDF forces arrested a terrorist and killed another four in a gun battle in the city.

This rocket attack is the first since the end of Operation Guardian of the Walls in May. Terrorists have launched arson attacks at Israel’s south.

Israel has yet to respond, but its leaders have recently warned Hamas against renewing its attacks on Israel.

This attack occurred as the factions in the Gaza Strip are set to meet on Monday night to decide on their response following what they allege to be “Israel’s evasion of the agreements that led to the end of Operation Guardian of the Walls.”

The factions in Gaza set an ultimatum to Israel demanding that Israel open the crossings into Gaza and transfer funds from Qatar by Monday night, saying that otherwise they will start another war of attrition.
