Escalation follows Israeli Army’s announcement of a full maritime blockade on the Strip

The rocket is the first to be launched at Israel since a ceasefire agreement  was reached between the two sides in early May. At the time, nearly 700 rockets were launched from Gaza into Israel while Israel carried out airstrikes on the Gaza Strip. It was the largest outbreak of violence since the 2014 Gaza war, resulting in 4 Israelis and 25 Palestinians killed.

Last week, Gaza officials warned of escalation over Israel’s ‘foot-dragging’ in implementing the ceasefire agreement. A senior official told Haaretz that Palestinian factions, including Hamas, are demanding the transfer of additional funds from Qatar, a further easing on the import of dual-purpose goods from Israel, and progress on humanitarian projects.
