Report: Rockets Fired from Egypt Hit Israel

Two major Israeli newspapers are reporting that rockets fired from Egypt have hit Israel.

“Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night,” reports the Jerusalem Post. “The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries.”

The Israeli daily Haaretz reports, “Rockets fired from direction of Egypt toward Eshkol Regional Council.”

It appears no damage was reported in connection with the rocket fire from Egypt. Earlier today, the Egyptian prime minister visited Gaza to express solidarity with the Palestinians there.

Barack Hussein Obama expressed his solidarity with Morsi

“President Obama called Egyptian President Morsi today to discuss the situation in Gaza,” the White House said in a statement. “The President commended Egypt’s efforts to de-escalate the situation and expressed his hope that these efforts would be successful.”
