The IDF said the strike was carried out in response to the Gaza-ruling terror group's "recent actions near the border fence."
Footage disseminated by the IDF showed terrorists attempting to infiltrate Israel through the fence, as well as Palestinian attempts to damage the fence and an aircraft attacking a Hamas post in retaliation to fire at an IDF force.
The army also attacked two additional Hamas outposts in the northern strip using aircraft and tank fire. The strikes came in response to Hamas fire at IDF forces earlier in the day.
A statement issued by the IDF said it was "adamantly acting to thwart wide-scale terrorist acts that are being led and orchestrated by the Hamas terror group. Any terror act will be met with a stringent response."
The riots near the fence Monday concentrated on 13 conflagration points in which "some 40,000 people were violently rioting," as per the IDF. The riots also included throwing explosive charges and Molotov cocktails at the fence and towards Israeli forces.
In addition, Palestinians burned tires, threw rocks and launched burning projectiles in an attempt to light fires on the Israeli side of the border and to harm Israeli forces.
