The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported that around 50 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel around 10:00 (local time) on Saturday, May 4. After the start of the barrage, IDF planes conducted airstrikes on two rocket launch sites. As of 10:50, no casualties or damages have been reported from the attacks. Further rocket attacks and retaliatory strikes by the IDF are possible in the coming hours.


In general, rocket fire and strikes between Israel and the Gaza Strip have intensified since early December 2017. Hundreds of rockets and mortars have been fired from the Gaza Strip, often followed by retaliatory Israeli airstrikes.


Individuals present in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation and seek immediate shelter in the event of a rocket attack.

Due to the underlying terrorist threat, travelers in Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip are advised to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities. Some Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas near the Israeli-Lebanese, Israeli-Syrian, and Israeli-Egyptian borders.
