Israeli aircraft struck a number of terror targets in Gaza, including two naval vessels belonging to Hamas, the IDF said early Sunday after a rocket was launched from Gaza at Israeli territory on Saturday night.
The rocket landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council. No damage was caused and no injuries were reported.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit confirmed the strikes, saying that they came in response to “the terror attacks from the Gaza Strip, which include incendiary balloons and attempts to damage our security infrastructure over the past few days.”
The IDF emphasized they take any attempt to harm Israeli civilians very seriously and hold Hamas terror group responsible for the developments in Gaza.
“Earlier tonight, thousands of Israeli families heard the sounds of air raid sirens and ran to bomb shelters when a rocket was fired from Gaza at Israel. In response, our fighter jets and aircraft just struck several Hamas targets and underground structures in Gaza”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
An RPG warhead attached to a bunch of balloons launched by Muslim terrorists in Gaza landed Saturday afternoon in the Shokeda Forest in the Sdot Negev Regional Council.
