The IAF struck five terror sites in northern and central Gaza Thursday morning, a response to rocket attacks a few hours earlier.

The army's strikes were in response to four rockets that fell in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council on Wednesday night around 9:45 p.m. The IDF said one of the rockets hit a community in the region and the second rocket fell in an open area. No injuries were reported, but a home did sustain damage from shrapnel from the projectile.

According to Palestinian reports, one person in northern Gaza was injured.


Around the same time as the rockets, in the West Bank, a Palestinian vehicle attempted to run over soldiers at the entrance of an IDF base near Bethlehem, according to the IDF Spokesperson's Office. No injuries or damage to the soldiers or the base were reported.

Forces responded by opening fire at the car and identified a hit before the vehicle fled the scene.

Earlier in the week, Palestinian terrorists fired a salvo of rockets from Gaza at southern Israel. Two of the rockets were intercepted over the city of Ashkelon by an Iron Dome anti-rocket battery.

The strikes in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip come after almost a week of intensive searches for the three kidnapped teens that were kidnapped by Hamas, and large-scale arrests of Hamas members in the West Bank
