The Israeli Air Force attacked an underground rocket launcher in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday night.


The strike was meant to "eliminate an imminent threat" of rocket fire towards Israel, the IDF Spokesman's Office said.


Details of the strike remain unclear. Israeli media reported the target was a terrorist cell in Beit Hanoun about to launch a rocket at Israel. 


Palestinian media has yet to report on the strike, and it is still unclear whether there were any Palestinian casualties.


Two weeks ago, a Gaza rocket hit the green house area of the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. Two hours later, a rocket fell at the Eshkol Regional Council. No one was hurt in either incident.
