The Israeli Air Force struck a terror target east of Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip on Saturday morning, in reponse to Palestinian rocket fire at the western Negev earlier.
According to Palestinian TV channel Al-Quds, the IAF jets targeted a terror post of Hamas' military wing, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, near the Islamic University. According to the Palestinians, two missiles were fired towards the target.
An IDF spokesman said that the strike targeted "a terror activity site and a weapon storage facility," and that direct hits were identified.
