Israel strikes Hamas terror positions in Gaza after rocket attack

The IDF carried out airstrikes against two Hamas terror positions in Gaza overnight Tuesday in response to a rocket fired from Gaza which landed in open territory in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council.

Ayman Sahbani, an emergency director at Gaza’s Shifa hospital, says three Gazans were wounded in the strike, including a 26-year-old man who was in serious condition after being struck in the head by shrapnel.

The rocket fired into Israel, which landed in an open field in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, caused no casualties or damage, an IDF spokesperson added.

“This is crossing a dangerous line that Israel will bear the consequences of,” said Hamas terror group after the Israeli retaliation.

Israel has seen rocket fire from Gaza in the three years since its last war with Gaza’s Hamas terror group rulers. Most have been claimed by ISIS-linked Salafist groups in Gaza.

Israel holds Hamas responsible for all fire out of the strip—even rockets launched by any of the various terrorists groups challenging it.
