Israeli air-strike misses Gaza rocket launcher

An Israeli air strike missed its target in the western Gaza Strip on Monday morning, Palestinian security sources said.

The sources said the Israeli strike, which took place at 7:25am (GMT), had targeted a rocket launcher in the coastal area of western Gaza, which had been used earlier this morning to launch rockets into southern Israel.

On Monday morning, Israeli Radio announced that four rockets had been fired at Israel from the Gaza Strip in the day's early hours. The rockets, it said, had fallen in the Negev Desert in southern Israel.

According to Israeli Radio, one of the rockets was intercepted in the Negev by the Iron Dome defense system, while the remaining three came to earth in an empty area in the desert without causing casualties.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for Monday's rocket attack.
