    Mortar fire landed in an open area in Eshkol Regional Council after rocket sirens blared near the Gaza Strip border, IDF Spokesperson's Unit said on Wednesday.
    The IDF also reported it had detected two more rocket launches from the Palestinian-ruled enclave that haven't crossed the border and landed within the Gaza Strip.
    Israel carried out several retaliatory airstrikes on Hamas positions in the southern Gaza Strip, including arms manufacturing facilities and underground infrastructure.
    IDF officials say that the military holds Hamas responsible for what is happening in and out of the Gaza Strip and it will carry the consequences for any action against Israeli citizens.
