High-trajectory launchings from Gaza Strip and Sinai

Throughout September 2015 4 rockets were launched** from the Gaza Strip towards Israel as opposed to 3 in August.

 **Clarification: The number of launchings is the number of rockets/mortar shells actually launched during one high-trajectory fire attack. For example: one attack may include a salvo of three launchings, that is, three rockets/ mortar shells, and so it will be counted as one attack and three launchings.
