IDF strikes in Gaza in response to rocket fire

Palestinians say airport in Rafah among targets hit; no injuries reported

IDF aircraft attacked targets in south Gaza overnight Wednesday.


The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said forces identified direct hits, adding that the strike was carried out in coordination with the Shin Bet security service.


Palestinian sources in the Hamas-ruled territory said one of the targets was the airport in Rafah, but there were no reports of injury.


The Israeli army said the attack was launched in retaliation for the rocket fire on Israel's Negev region over the past few days.


"The IDF will continue to operate with resolve and force against any element that employs terror against the State of Israel, and it holds Hamas solely responsible for preserving the calm in Gaza," the army Spokesperson's Unit said.
