(MENAFN - Arab News) Gaza militants yesterday fired 18 rockets at southern Israel, ending several days of calm, with the armed wing of the ruling Hamas movement saying it was revenge after an air raid killed one of their men.

It was the second straight day in which fighters had fired rockets at Israel in a confrontation which began early on Sunday, and effectively ended three days of calm after an Egyptian-brokered truce went into force at midnight on Wednesday.

"At least 18 rockets were fired at Israeli territory, without causing injuries or damage," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP, saying the count was from midnight.

Yesterday's barrage of rocket fire followed hot on the heels of two late-night Israeli airstrikes that did not cause any injuries, Palestinian security sources said.

Although the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades did not say how many rockets it had fired, it named at least five areas in southern Israel where it had targeted "military sites" - Sufa, Kissufim, Beeri, Yad Mordechai and Nahal Oz.

And it posted a grainy video on their website which appeared to show militants launching nine rockets in the early morning.

"This shelling was in response to the continuous Zionist bombing and terrorizing of peaceful citizens, which most recently killed Suleiman Kamel Al-Qara, as well as in response to the repeated incursions and attacks carried out by the occupation," the group said referring to one of its own fighters.
