Smoke rises following what Gaza police said was an Israeli air strike on February 27, 2017. Israeli aircraft hit Hamas targets in Gaza hours after a rocket fired by terrorists from the region slammed into southern Israel.

Israeli fighter pilots bombed northern Gaza late Wednesday night in retaliation for a rocket attack on southern Israel earlier in the evening.

The rocket exploded in the Sdot HaNegev Regional Council District.


IAF aircraft aimed air strikes at two infrastructure targets belonging to the ruling Hamas terrorist organization.

“The IDF attacked and destroyed two terrorist infrastructures belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization in northern Gaza,” the IDF Spokesperson said in a statement.

“The IDF holds Hamas responsible for all attacks at Israel from the Gaza Strip,” the IDF added.
