According to the IDF Spokesperson's Unit, the aircraft attacked three terror targets, making direct hits. The army said that it considers Hamas responsible for the previous days' rocket fire.


Hamas and the Islamic Jihad fired dozens of rockets and mortar shells towards the Eshkol Regional Council last Monday, responding to
an IAF strike that injured two Palestinians on the Strip. The fire from Gaza was renewed the following day, with several rockets exploding near southern towns. Another rocket was fired on Wednesday, hitting an open area between Netivot and the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council. No injuries were reported in the attacks.


The IAF last retaliated on Wednesday night; Palestinian sources reported that the strike hit a training camp belonging to the The Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military wing. Reportedly, none were hurt.
