Smoke rises following an Israeli air strike on February 27, 2017. Israeli aircraft hit Hamas targets in Gaza after a rocket fired by Gaza terrorists 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.
