The IDF attacked Hamas terrorist targets in southern Gaza late Wednesday night in response to an earlier rocket attack.
Rocket Attack on Southern Israel’s Eshkol District
An IDF spokesperson said IDF aircraft and fighter planes attacked several terrorist targets belonging to Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization in the southern part of the enclave, including weapons production and underground infrastructure.
The attack was carried out in response to the rocket fire and the explosion of balloon bombs flown from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory during the day.
Rocket fire from Gaza was aimed at southern Israel’s Eshkol Regional Council district at around 9:10 pm. Security sources said the projectile landed in an open area in the Eshkol district. There were no physical injuries and no property damage was reported.
“The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible for what is happening in and out of the Gaza Strip and it will bear the consequences for actions against Israeli citizens,” the IDF spokesperson said.
