Gaza Rockets Fired Toward Israel in Night Sky

Rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip toward Israel late on Friday.

Earlier in the day, Israel unleashed a wave of airstrikes in Gaza, killing at least 10 people, including a senior militant, and wounding dozens, according to Palestinian officials.

Israel said it was targeting the Islamic Jihad militant group in response to an "imminent threat" following the arrest of another senior militant in the occupied West Bank earlier this week.

Palestinian militants launched a barrage of rockets hours later as air raid sirens wailed in central and southern Israel. Islamic Jihad claimed to have fired 100 rockets.
