Hours after a Qassam rocket was fired at the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council on Sunday, the Air Force attacked a building in the northern Gaza Strip, leaving one dead and four wounded. The casualties were taken to a hospital in Gaza. One reportedly sustained serious wounds and three sustained mild injuries.

 

At around 2 am Monday, Gaza sources reported that the IAF struck a naval police post in the northern part of Gaza City. Eye witnesses reported hearing a loud blast, adding that the power had been cut off near the post.

Gaza's rescue services spokesman Adham Abu Salmia confirmed that four victims were taken to a local hospital in the northern Strip. Shortly thereafter the Palestinians reported finding a body near the site of the strike.

 

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit confirmed that IAF aircrafts targeted a terror hub in the Strip's north, adding that the pilots reported hitting their mark. The IDF stressed that the strike was in response to the rocket fired at Israel on Sunday.

 

"The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens and IDF troops and will continue to act against any element employing terror," an IDF statement said. "The Hamas terror organization is accountable for all that goes on in Gaza."

 

Some three weeks after a new round of fighting with Palestinian terrorists in Gaza subsided, a Qassam rocket fired from the northern Strip exploded Sunday evening in an open area within Shaar Hanegev Regional Council's limits. There were no immediate reports of injury or damage.

 

The Color Red alert sounded in Sderot and the surrounding area shortly beforehand.
