More than 80 children had to flee for their lives at a night-time swimming event in southern Israel during another rocket attack from terrorists in Gaza on Wednesday night.

The projectile failed to cross the border and landed inside the enclave, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

In response, an Israeli military aircraft bombed a Hamas observation post along the border of the northern Gaza Strip, the IDF said.

No injuries were reported on either side.

The rocket launch from Gaza triggered sirens in the Israeli community of Netiv Ha’asara, north of the Strip.

The attack interrupted a night-time swimming event that the community was hosting at the time, sending dozens of children rushing to bomb shelters.

“The kids ran from the water straight to the shelter, they were very afraid. There were three of us adults helping them out,” Netiv Ha’asara resident Yifat Ben-Shushan told the Walla news site.

On Tuesday, terrorists in the Strip fired four mortar shells toward Israel. Three landed on the Gaza side of the border and one struck an open field inside southern Israel. In response, an Israeli aircraft bombed a Hamas observation post east of Juhor ad-Dik in the central Gaza Strip, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Senior Egyptian intelligence officials invited Hamas leaders to Cairo for talks aimed at restoring calm and a delegation led by two top Hamas members was slated to leave Gaza late on Monday, according to Israel’s Kan public broadcaster.

A delegation from the Islamic Jihad is expected to head to Cairo in the coming days as well.
