A rocket was fired from southern Gaza into Israel on Friday, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

No injuries have been reported.

Rocket sirens went off in Sufa and Nir Yitzhak, which are close to the Israeli border with Gaza.

The IDF earlier on Friday deployed more batteries for the Iron Dome air-defense system in southern Israel as Hamas threatened to retaliate for the accidental shooting death of one of its members earlier this week by Israeli soldiers in what the IDF labeled “a misunderstanding.”

According to media sources in Gaza, the man was shot in the leg and later died of his wounds.

Palestinian Wafa news identified him as 28-year-old Mahmud Ahmad Sabri al-Adham.

Hamas said in a statement that the death would not go “unpunished,” and that Israel “would bear the consequences of this criminal act.”
