The Israeli Air Force retaliated against a rocket attack in Israel on Saturday evening, striking targets within Gaza early Sunday morning.

The IDF Spokespersons office said "at 23:00 P.M. this evening a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip struck the Sdot Negev Regional Council. In retaliation the IAF targeted two terror activity sites in the southern and in the central Gaza Strip."

Direct hits were confirmed.



Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman said "the sites attacked this evening are part of the terrorist support network, enhancing terror capabilities against Israel and it civilians. As long as Hamas enables its henchmen to attack Israel, these sites will not be immune from our watchful eye and operational strike, while they are used to formulate, train and develop malicious terrorist intentions."
