High-trajectory launchings from Gaza Strip and Sinai
Throughout November 2016 no rockets or mortar shells were launched** from the Gaza Strip towards Israel, as opposed to one rocket and one mortar shell (within 1 attack) in October.
**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.
