Event

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed that it shelled the Gaza Strip in the early hours (local time) of Saturday, November 2, in response to the launching of at least 10 rockets from the Gaza Strip toward Israel a few hours earlier on Friday, November 1. At least one Palestinian has consequently died, and another two are injured. The IDF attacked at least 15 sites that it claims are operated by Hamas, mainly in the Khan Younis vicinity. 

Counterattacks and further cross-border fire are possible over the coming hours and days.

Context

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.

Advice

Individuals in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to monitor developments to the situation and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments. Seek immediate shelter in the event of a rocket attack.

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.
