In response to rocket fire launched towards Israel late Wednesday night, the Israeli Air Force attacked two locations that were part of Hamas' terror infrastructure in the Gaza Strip.

The IDF spokesperson released a statement in which they promised to continue to work in order to maintain quiet in the Gaza border communities in Israel.

The rockets launched from the Gaza Slanded inside Israeli territory on Wednesday night.

The rockets landed in open territory and no red alert siren was sounded.

There were no reports of injuries or damage in the incident.

Wednesday night's rocket fire came after a flare up of violence on the Gaza border earlier this month which saw Hamas operatives target Israeli soldiers in several mortar attacks, followed by Israeli reprisals with tank fire and air strikes.

The tensions began after the IDF discovered a second Hamas attack tunnel snaking into Israeli territory from Gaza in the last two months.
