Israeli Air Force pilots carried out air strikes in Gaza Wednesday night in retaliation for rocket attacks launched by terrorists against southern Israel earlier in the evening.
Among the targets destroyed in the Israeli attack were two terrorist training bases in central Gaza and a concealed rocket launcher overnight.
One of the terrorist rockets hit a southern Israeli home (the occupants were not inside at the time), causing property damage. Another exploded in an open area.
Both landed in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council district.
“The IDF will not tolerate attempts to harm Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel,” the IDF Spokesperson said in a statement issued to media.
