WASHINGTON – The US condemned a Wednesday rocket attack from militants in Gaza against Israel.
“The United States condemns in the strongest terms today’s rocket attacks into Israel by terrorists from the Gaza Strip,” a State Department spokeswoman said. “It is reprehensible that dozens of rockets have been fired today alone. There is no justification for such attacks. We call for these terrorist attacks to cease immediately.”
Israel launched an attack against Gaza in retaliation, as fighter jets hit a number of targets in the Gaza Strip.
“Israel, like any nation, has a right to defend itself,” the State Department said.
No casualties were reported in the rocket attacks from Gaza nor from the Israeli retaliation.
