Four rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza early Friday, according to Israeli authorities, with one of the missiles intercepted by defense systems and the other two landing in open space. The country and its Palestinian territory neighbor have being exchanging fire in recent days after the kidnap and murder of three Israeli teenagers and an alleged retaliation killing of a 16-year-old Arab boy. Two of the rockets on Friday were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome defense system and the other two landed near the southern border town of Sderot, according to the Israeli Defense Force.
