Israel retaliates after 3 rocket attacks from Gaza
Three rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at the Eshkol Regional Council on Wednesday afternoon within less than two hours of one another, with all of them landing in open space. No injuries or damage were reported.
The first rocket fell close to the Gaza border fence at around 2pm inside Israeli territory. Approximately one-and-a-half hours later, the IDF identified yet another rocket landing in the same region.
Israeli Air Force fighter jets on Wednesday night attacked a central terrorist infrastructure in Gaza.
“In response to the three rockets fired at southern Israeli communities throughout yesterday from Gaza, IAF fighter jets targeted a significant terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
“The IDF will continue to use all means to thwart attempts to attack the citizens of Israel. The IDF will not allow any breach of Israeli sovereignty or any hostile attempts by terror organizations such as Hamas and remains prepared for a wide variety of scenarios”.
