Gaza rocket hits Israel, no damage

 

A Gazan rocket was reportedly fired into southern Israel on Saturday, two days after the start of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, causing no injuries or damage, the Israeli military said.

The cross-border rocket fire was the first since Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in Washington to relaunch peace negotiations.

Hamas opposes direct talks between Palestine and Israel which has failed to gain public support in Palestine and its military wing has vowed to continue attacks against Israel.

Fatah movement that rules West Bank says that Abbas was under heavy pressure to accept direct talks despite no progress has been reached during proximity talks.
