The Israel Air Force bombed a Hamas terror target in Gaza in retaliation for the rocket fire at Southern Israel.
“In response to the rocket fired at southern Israel earlier this evening, fighter jets struck a Hamas compound composed of two military structures in the southern Gaza Strip. The IDF holds Hamas accountable for all violence emanating from the Gaza Strip”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
There were no reports of casualties.
The attack came in the wake of a rocket fired at the Shaar HaNegev Regional Council on Friday evening, which fell in an open area. No one was hurt and no damage was caused.
It followed a late-night rocket fired at Israel on Thursday night as well, which led the IDF to attack a Hamas observation post in the northern Gaza Strip.
Earlier in the week, on midnight between Monday and Tuesday, a Code Red rocket alert siren was sounded in Sdot Negev and Shaar HaNegev regional councils.
