IDF Strikes Gaza in Response to Earlier Rocket Attacks
The IDF struck targets belonging to Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip late Friday night in response to rockets fired from Gaza into Israeli territory earlier in the night.
During the IDF operation, a rocket weapon production site was targeted, in addition to underground infrastructure and a Hamas military post.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said after the strike that “the IDF condemns any kind of terror attacks against Israel, and it is ready and prepared to act in determinations against attempts to harm Israeli citizens and against Israeli sovereignty.”
Two Palestinians were reportedly lightly injured as a result of the attack. A source in Gaza said that the shrapnel caused by the bombing hit a hospital for children and a center for disabled persons situated in the coastal enclave. (JPost / VFI News)
