The rockets were fired just hours after five Palestinians reportedly were killed in border clashes in the Gaza Strip. There were no immediate Israeli reports of casualties from the recent attack, the largest in months.

Since late March, when the so-called Palestinian Great March of Return began, tensions have been mounting between the Israelis and the Palestinians near the fence that separates Gaza from Israel. The violence reached a peak in May as the US Embassy in Jerusalem was opened, timed to the anniversary of the establishment of the State of Israel. Then, more than 60 Palestinians were killed and more than 2,700 others wounded by Israeli forces, firing from behind the border fence toward protesters, over the course of two days.
