Azerbaijan, Baku, 25 June/ corr. Trend R.Hafizoglu / On 25 June missile shooting of Sederot, an Israeli city, was a response to the murder of Palestinian activist in Nabluse by the Israeli soldiers.

"Sederot city underwent missile shooting after a Palestinian activist in Nabluse was killed by the Israeli soldiers," Sami abu-Zohri, Spokesman for Hamas, told Trend over telephone from Gaza on 25 June.

Following a ceasefire agreement, inked between Hamas and Israel, Sederot was exposed to missile shooting on 24 June, BBC reported on 25 June.
