The IDF struck targets in the Gaza Strip Wednesday night, after five rockets fired from the Strip pounded farming regions in southern Israel.

The Israel Air Force attacked "centers of terror activity in the northern and southern Gaza Strip," the IDF Spokesman's Office announced in a statement, identifying direct hits.

The strikes on targets in Gaza were in direct response to rocket-fire earlier on Wednesday, the IDF statement said.

"The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli citizens or IDF soldiers, and will continue to act against any terrorist activity against the State of Israel," the IDF said. "Hamas is a terrorist organization, and bears all responsibility."
